The CMP Game Media Group announced today that it is renaming the Independent Game Festival's Grand Prize in honor of Seumas McNally. McNally, who succumbed to Hodgkin's Disease on March 21 at the age of 21, was President and Lead Programmer for Longbow Digital Arts, the team that won this year's IGF Grand Prize. The award will henceforth be called the Seumas McNally Grand Prize. The McNally family plans to reorganize Longbow Digital Arts. Current plans for the company include looking for a publisher for Tread Marks, and building more games with Seumas' Tread Marks game engine as the foundation. A trust has been set up to provide an annual award to recognize programming excellence in the game development community. For more information on giving a donation in Seumas' memory please visit http://www.indiegames.com.
