Cogs, Gear The Big Winners at DICE 2010's First Indie Game Challenge

It's a good time to be an indie in video games. Activision CEO Bobby Kotick announced a $500,000 indie contest at DICE 2010 and the event itself got in the action with the first annual Indie Game Challenge. G4's Adam Sessler was on-hand to host the event, where beautiful puzzler Cogs and inventive action game Gears were the big winners, with each developer being awarded $100,000.

The Lazy 8 Studios-developed Cogs won the grand prize in the "professional" category, while Team 3's Gears took the "non-professional" prize. Each prized earned them $100,000, though. Not bad.

DICE has already confirmed the Indie Game Challenge is coming back next year. Submissions will be accepted starting sometime in May, with the entry window closing in September.

For more details on Cogs, visit the official website. The game was also recently released on iPhone. Gears, developed through the DigiPen program, is available for free through the school's site.
