Here are the Winners of Taipei Game Show 2018 Indie Game Awards!

Indie Game Award (IGA) is one of the highlights of this year’s Taipei Game Show. The aim is to recognize outstanding indie game developers around the world and showcase them in a global arena. This year, a total of 86 games are competing while only 22 games are included in the final round to compete for awards in eight categories including Best Narration, Best Visual Art, Best Audio, Best Design, Best Innovation, Best VR Game, Best Mobile Game, and IGA Grand Prix. Here are this year’s winners:


IGA Grand Prix & Best Visual Art: Old Man’s Journey

Developer: Broken Rules Interactive Media

Country of Origin: Austria

The double-award winner “Old Man’s Journey” is as much a game as an illustrated book, which tells a story of life experiences. Though brief, the game brings us a story with deep meanings of life.

An old man with furrowed brow embarks on a lonely journey of memories. As a third person, the player gets to see through the eyes of the old man, touch the objects along the way on his journey, and take a peek at the memories he holds dearly. Time never ends, but life does. What would be the last scene you remember when your life reaches its destination?
