IGF 2012 Main Competition Entries Reach a Record 568!
The Independent Games Festival has finally released their list of entries for their 2012 competition!
Notable entries include:
A Closed World – a JRPG-style game created by the Singapore-MIT GAMBIT Game Lab with no actual combat based around the issues of homophobia
Alone – an atmospheric adventure game originally designed by Infinite Ammo for the purpose of teaching developers (and aspiring developers) the Unity3D engine.
An Imperial Message – A videogame version of the Franz Kafka short story.
BasketBelle – the only basketball game I can say I’ve ever been excited for
FEZ – Come on. By now you should already know what this one is.
GIRP – This rock climbing simulator from QWOP creator Bennett Foddy has been cramping our fingers for months.
As I reached the G’s, I realized that there are simply too many games in this list to be excited for. Over the next few months, I will giving you a closer look into many of these lucky entrants, leading up to the March award show. Those wishing to play at home can find the entire list on the IGF website.
