Valve Offering Steam Distribution to Independent Games Festival Finalists
Valve just can't stop being the nicest publisher in the business. This time, they're teaming up with the Independent Games Festival, an annual awards show/summit for indie game devs. According to an official statement from the IGF organizers, "All IGF Main Competition finalists for this year’s event will receive the opportunity to accept a distribution agreement for Steam." With Steam's Greenlight program becoming more and more competitive (on top of a fee), this is pretty great news for a lot of those developers.
Finalists in each category will be announced later this month, with the actual event taking place on March 25 through the 29 in San Fransisco.
