Activision put on another one of its Independent Games Competitions while we weren't looking. Today, the two winning projects -- Iron Dragon by Christopher Hui and Planet Smashers by Michael Stanton -- were announced. For their efforts, these designers are taking home $175,000 and $75,000, respectively.
Before you even think to ask, yes, the designers will retain full intellectual property rights. Iron Dragon is described as "an action flight adventure optimized for touch-screen devices," while Planet Smashers (pictured above) is a 2D multiplayer shooter in which players can jump across moons.
It's far too early to get an idea of how these titles will pan out, but clearly the judges at IndieCade were convinced enough to award them top honors.
