Earlier this year, Desktop Dungeons development team QCF Design won an award for Excellence in Design at the annual Independent Game Festival awards. South African local developers Rodain Joubert, Danny Day and Marc Luck netted themselves $2500 and a shiny trophy!

QCF has just been nominated as one of the finalists in this year’s fifth annual Indiecade Festival. Chosen by an independent panel of judges, Desktop Dungeons is one of 36 finalists hand-picked from a list of over 400 entries. Entries included indie powerhouses like Fez, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP and BIT.TRIP FLUX.

The Red Carpet Awards ceremony (ooh! Sounds fancy!) will be held on Thursday the 6th of October in Culver City, California. Danny and Marc will be heading there for the awards ceremony, so hold thumbs for the team from QCF Design. Congratulations guys!
