The lights are on
IndieCade has announced the winners at its 2013 festival, with the Grand Jury Award going to the Quadrilateral Cowboy. The puzzle game, expected to release later this year, puts players into the role of a hacker in the 1980s. Critical darling Gone Home also took home an award for best audio while Kentucky Route Zero won for visuals and story/world design.
The IndieCade Festival, held every October in Los Angeles, previews some of the most promising independent games of the year and honors the best ones. Past IndieCade awards have gone to Botanicula (2012), Fez (2011), and Limbo (2010).

Our TakeIt's good to have an event like IndieCade to shine a spotlight on great independent games. Hopefully, these games and developers will get the recognition they deserve. I know that I will definitely play Gone Home as soon as possible and my interest in Quadrilateral Cowboy has grown quickly in the last two days.
