Closure is an intriguing little puzzle-platformer that uses light and shadow to create - and modify - the game world. It's also the Grand Prize winner at the Indie Game Challenge at this year's D.I.C.E. summit, taking home a handy $100,000.
Prizes this year were awarded to four games across six categories - and the competition was pretty fierce. Congratulations to The Bridge and Symphony, which both picked up two awards each - and a special tip of the cap to Nitronic Rush for the Gamers' Choice award - voted by the public!
Here's the full list:
While Symphony and The Bridge are currently headed for an elusive "2012" release date, you can still play a couple of the winning titles. Nitronic Rush is available right now, free to play, and the Flash PC version of Closure is available online, but you will have to wait a while for the PS3 version.
I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
