Independent Games Festival
Just thought I would show you guys the website. They are now accepting submissions for the 2005 competition to be held next year.
They also have a student showcase which is free, and available for all college and high school students.
I would submit my current RTS project once I get it under working order, but since I am going on my church mission soon (if you dont know about that...go to the gen. disc. board and go back a few weeks), and I will be gone for 2 years starting in August, I simply don't have the time.
However, when I get back in 2 years, I plan on starting a Game Development Club at my university, and organizing a small team to develop a game we can submit to the competition. I think it would be fun.
