Tim Schafer is to be honoured with a lifetime achievement award at this year’s IndieCade Awards, which forms part of the International Festival of Independent Games.

Schafer, who is responsible for titles such as The Secret of Monkey Island, Psychonauts and Brütal Legend, was chosen as he is “the risk-taking, boundary pushing spirit at the heart of the independent gaming community,” according to a conference statement.

The award will be presented to Schafer by his long time friend and current cohort Ron Gilbert as part of the festival, which takes place on October 8-10, 2010 in Culver City, California.

Double Fine’s currently working on Costume Quest for a release next month on PSN and XBLA.
