Aussie Wins Top Prize In Indie Games Fest

captain forever picDid you know China has its own Independent Games Festival? Well, it does, and an Aussie-made game took out the top honour.

Captain Forever, a gloriously neon top-down shooter that sees you upgrading your craft through scavenging parts from defeated enemies, won the award for overall best game during the second Game Developers Conference China, announced on Sunday night.

The winner is a local lad called Farbs, whose previous work includes the demented genius of Rom Check Fail.

Also nominated as a finalist was S.H.M.U.P. by fellow Aussie designer, Aaron Styles.

Captain Forever is finished. To find out what the fuss is about, you can buy it now from Farbs‘ website. Watch the clip below to whet your appetite.
