The Indie Game Making Contest has lain dormant. Defeated by great evils, it rested for 3 years, but now, it has been rejuvenated. It is time for the IGMC to once again venture forth, and it needs many stalwart allies. Make the best game you can make with any Maker Engine and join the quest!
You have 5 weeks to complete your task and become part of the legend of IGMC: Rebirth! Join and compete for over $10,000 in Cash Prizes!
Ahead of your adventure, be sure to plan your game around the theme of our contest! So what is that theme?
Much like our contest itself contest itself coming back from the beyond, we wish to see games following the theme of Rebirth/Rejuvenation/Resurrection. All three words mean similar things, but are still slightly different. You can use any of those three words as the theme of your game.
Remember: Your game must use one of those as it's theme to be a valid entry!
