Valve awards IGF finalists with Steam distribution agreements

Luxuria Superbia

Valve is awarding all 23 of this year's International Games Festival (IGF) main competition finalists with distribution agreements, which means they get to release their games on Steam.

As a perk for winning, the finalists get to automatically go through the Greenlight process and on to release for PC, Mac, and Linux. Musical journey Luxuria Superbia (pictured) and sensory-exploration game SoundSelf are already available on Greenlight, so they're moving through first.

Both titles earned Nuovo Award nominations for innovation.

Other finalists include Device 6, 868-Hack, and The Yawhg. Others, like The Banner Saga, which earned a nomination for Excellence in Visual Art, are already available on Steam.

Voting for the IGF Audience Award winner begins on Feb. 18.
