About IGF Mobile

Think Services established the Independent Games Festival in 1998 to encourage innovation in game development - and the main IGF Competition is now heading into its twelfth year.

In the same spirit, the IGF organizers announced the first-ever IGF Mobile competition in 2007 - a contest set up to promote innovation in portable games. The competition returned for its second year with a continued commitment to honoring the unique mobile-specific possibilities for games, with submissions accepted on mobile phone handsets (such as the iPhone and Android-compatible phones), PDAs, and handheld game consoles including the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS.
