ECD Systems is proud to announce the 2nd Annual Indie Game Showcase, a contest held online with the aim of providing more exposure to indie game developers.

Visitors to the website will be able to play the games and then vote on their favorites in two categories: general and casual. For each category, there will be a grand prize winner and three finalists. The award ceremony will take place at the Austin Games Conference in Austin, TX, September 5-7, 2007. The grand prize for each category is a fully configured high-end developer’s work station. Each finalist will receive an IPOD Nano plus other valuable prizes.

Participants can submit their games through the Indie Game Showcase site (www.indiegameshowcase.com). Games need to be a demo that runs on a PC platform. (The game itself can be intended for any platform.) Enter unpublished titles or titles that have been released in the last six months prior to March 9, 2007.

The deadline for submission is mid-July; however, the sooner the game is submitted, the more people will be able to vote on it. Voting begins May 1, 2007. A panel of judges will decide the winners and three finalists from the ten most popular games of each category.
