DICE’s 2012 Indie Game Challenge came to a close last week, but not before revealing the grand prize winners of this year’s contest. Closure, the puzzle-platformer by Eyebrow Interactive that focuses on the manipulation of light and shadow took home the $100,000 Grand Prize this year; an impressive feat considering the high overall quality of the entrants.

Aside from Closure, three other games were also awarded monetary prizes across five categories. The pencil-drawn puzzle-platformer called The Bridge and the procedurally-generated musical shooter by Empty Clip Studios called Symphony both snatched up two awards apiece. The neon survival racer Nitronic Rush won the coveted Gamers Choice award, a selection voted on by the public.

The complete list of IGC 2012 winners is as follows:

Grand Prize ($100,000): Closure by Eyebrow Interactive

Technical Achievement ($2,500): Symphony by Empty Clip Studios

Achievement in Art Direction ($2,500): The Bridge by Ty Taylor and Mario Castaneda

Achievement in Gameplay ($2,500): The Bridge by Ty Taylor and Mario Castaneda

GameStop PC Digital Download Award: Symphony by Empty Clip Studios

Gamer’s Choice Award – Voted on by the Public ($2,500): Nitronic Rush by Team Nitronic

I have yet to get my hands on Symphony, but I’ve played (and have been quite impressed) by Closure, The Bridge, and Nitronic Rush. They’re all quite impressive and fun in their own ways, and are absolutely worth checking out.

Nitronic Rush can be downloaded and played for free, and the Flash version of Closure can be played online, and is headed to PlayStation 3, soon.

Release information for The Bridge and Symphony beyond “2012” has yet to be revealed.
