IndiePlus Hall of Fame 2015

“Having our early prototype of Progress getting recognition from the IndiePlus award gave us a needed extra push of motivation.”

– Tim Garbos, Progress, 2015 IndiePlus Winner

“It was a pleasure to be part of IndiePlus last year and a great honor to have my little game reviewed by industry veterans. Kudos to FunPlus for getting involved in the indie scene and offering tiny developers like myself this opportunity.”

– Alex Blaj, Dwelp, 1st Runner-up

 

It’s really great to see FunPlus promoting up-and-coming indie mobile games. It’s an incredibly tough space to get noticed, so the extra attention is much appreciated!

– Joel McDonald, Prune, 2nd Runner-up

“In addition to its winners, FunPlus would like to recognize some unique submissions that were incredibly compelling including: Divide by Sheep by TinyBuild, Skiing Yeti Mountain by Featherweight, Mucho Party by GlobZ, Gathering Sky by A Stranger Gravity, Magenta Arcade by Long Hat House, and Feed My Alien by Promineo Studios. Mr. Jump by 1Button SARL reached over 5M downloads its first week of release!”

ENTRY METHOD AND REQUIREMENTS

You can enter the following way: http://indieplus2016.funplus.com/.

JUDGING

Games will be judged on how well they leverage the global mobile platform in creating “fun.” This includes innovation in design, tech, sound, multiplayer and how these positively affect the player experience on a mobile device. Great games should “feel” native to the platform the user will be playing on. We believe this is key to success on mobile, and are looking for the best example of this philosophy across the contest submissions. The panel of celebrity judges will select one (1) Grand Prize winner and two (2) Runner-Ups by a supermajority vote.

 

WINNERS AND NOTIFICATION

Ten (10) finalists will be announced on Tuesday, March 1, 2016, and three (3) winners will be announced at Funplus’ GDC Party on Tuesday, March 15, 2016 in San Francisco. Finalists should be able to physically attend our GDC Party (travel at own expense). If they cannot, they can elect a representative to receive the award (actual award transfer to be arranged separately). There will be a total of three (3) winners following the end of the Promotion Period. The odds of winning depend upon the number of entries received.
