Independent Games Festival 2013 winners announced

The fifteenth annual Independent Games Festival took place yesterday, and nine awards were given out to indie developers for their respective games. Surprisingly, two games received more awards than any others this year. Considering both Cart Life and FTL: Faster Than Light were highly distinct and relatively unique experiences, it certainly makes sense that they each took home multiple prizes.

Also on the receiving end of some awards were Kentucky Route Zero, 140, Little Inferno, and Zineth. Check out the full list of IFG 2013 winners below:
