Thirteen games, chosen by a panel of experts, received top honors at the 2011 IndieCade Conference Festival. FEZ, created by Polytron Corporation, was awarded the Grand Jury Award. IndieCade recognizes superior examples of story development, visual, technological, audio and all-around independent game titles as well as a creator who has greatly contributed to the independent gaming field.

Eleven of the winners, including the Grand Jury Award were announced at the Red Carpet awards show, sponsored by LG Electronics, on Thursday, Oct. 6. On Sunday night, Oct. 9, GameFly, a supporting sponsor, hosted the closing party where the Audience and Developer Choice Awards were announced.
