The Independent Games Festival 2009, set to take place in San Francisco next march, has announced the entrants to its awards. All 226 of them. And that doesn’t include the 140+ student titles also to be included in the student showcase. That’s a huge increase on last year’s event, and a colourful barometer of indie-gaming health.
Looking through the list we see stacks of games that have appeared on RPS this year, as well as plenty more that we’ll cover in the coming months. (Oh, and Gillen and myself appear to be judges for the competition too, a task that we will take all too seriously, I suspect.)
