Valve have announced that they are to offer distribution on Steam to all the finalists of the 2013 Independent Games Festival in all seven categories. This will include all three formats available including PC, Mac and Linux.
Valve aren’t alone. Microsoft have also announced that they will select one of the finalists and offer them first-party publishing details on Windows, Xbox Live Arcade and Windows Phone. This is the second year Microsoft have made the offer: last year they selected Capybara Games’ upcoming Super TIME Force to be released over their platforms.
The winners of the IGF will be announced on March 27th 2013. 558 games have been entered into the competition.
