The Indie Game Challenge is looking for further submissions to its 2011 development competition, with just one month remaining before the October 1 deadline.

The contest accepts both amateur and professional applications, with prizes including two lots of $100,000, a $50,000 scholarship for The Guildhall at SMU and pitch meetings with Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, THQ, Capcom, Microsoft and NAMCO/Bandai at next year's D.I.C.E. Summit.

"Cogs was selected as a launch title for the iPad, it picked up retail sales in Europe and is currently making its way to a number of other platforms," claimed Rob Jagnow of grand prize winner Lazy 8 Studios.

"The money allowed us to kick off an ambitious new indie game project that would have otherwise been too costly."

Other IGC success stories include App Store chart regular Fieldrunners and indie hit Aaaah!
