The organizers of the Independent Games Festival, the leading showcase for independent video games worldwide, have announced a renewed agreement with Valve for IGF 2014.

Once again, all IGF Main Competition finalists for this year's event will receive the opportunity to accept a distribution agreement for Steam, a leading platform for distribution in today's burgeoning independent gaming market.

This means every single Main Competition finalist in each of the jury-voted categories - the Seumas McNally Grand Prize, Excellence In Design, Excellence In Art, Excellence In Narrative, Excellence in Audio, and even the Nuovo Award - can work directly with Steam to bring their titles to PC, Mac and Linux.

2013 IGF Finalists that have already appeared on Steam following their success at the Festival include Gone Home, MirrorMoon EP and Kentucky Route Zero, as well as acclaimed titles such as Cart Life and Starseed Pilgrim.

With over 200 distinguished judges discussing and recommending titles for named, discipline-specific juries in each of the seven main categories, IGF 2014 will announce its finalists in January 2014, and award winners at Game Developers Conference 2014 in San Francisco next March.

Finalists and winners of the Independent Games Festival since its 1999 debut have included landmark indie games such as Braid, World of Goo, Super Meat Boy, Portal predecessor Narbacular Drop, Minecraft, and a host of other seminal titles.

A shame they didn't start doing this sooner. No chance I'm getting through Greenlight. ;)
