IGF Entrants Finalized

September 12th, 2006 by Troy Goodfellow · No Comments · Uncategorized

The 2007 Independent Games Festival competition entrants have all been posted at the IGF website. There is the usual mix of casual fare and serious games with development time measured in both months and years.

The list demonstrates just how big the indie scene is and how difficult it is for me to single out three games every month for my Alt.Games contribution to CGM. A lot of these games are just out of my radar, since I learn about games the way most people do – word of mouth, developer marketing and serendipity.

I doubt you’ll see much coverage of Press the Spacebar 2000 anywhere. City of Greensville looks very cool. A lot of the stuff looks cool. The already well known (in indie circles) Kudos and Gibbage are there. And Slitherine has two entries.

The strategy game entries seem to go on and on. Bugs of War. Clones. Hegemony: Philip of Macedon.

The IGF winners will be announced at the 2007 GDC (March 7-9) in San Francisco. (I’ll do my best to be there and blog live from the floor.)
