iPhone at IGF Mobile '09
Think Service and ngmoco have established a new partnership that will add a $10,000 "best iPhone game" prize to the 2009 Independent Games Festival Mobile. The partnership also includes a Gold Sponsorship of the IGF Mobile event, which is now entering its second year. iPhone developers who enter a game will be eligible for all of the IGF Mobile categories, including design, art, technical and audio awards, a Best Game award as well as a few other major prizes. This year will also allow developers to enter their games free of charge.
The finalists in the Best iPhone Game category will be invited to showcase their games on the expo floor at the Game Developers Conference 2009, which will be held in San Francisco at the end of March. The winners will also be showcased at the IGF Mobile awards ceremony at GDC 2009 and at the Independent Games Festival Awards event.
