Independent Games Festival Announces 2010 Finalists
“We’re delighted to see the IGF Student Showcase continuing to highlight some outstanding student-created titles from all over the world,” said Simon Carless, IGF chairman. “This year's record entries have once again unearthed some outstanding titles, and we're looking forward to showing them to the public at GDC this March.”
The Independent Games Festival was established in 1998 by Game Developers Conference organizer Think Services to recognize the best independent game developers, in the way that the Sundance Film Festival honors the independent film community. IGF Main Competition finalists were announced earlier this month, and a separate set of finalists -- for the IGF Mobile competition -- will debut in late January.
