IGF Winners Announced

Stolen banners are our stock in trade.

The results are in, with the winners announced for the 2008 IGF Awards.

The standard of entries this year was just stunning, and when we’ve tried to pick out our favourite of the top prize entries, it’s been impossible. For us it came down to three. Audiosurf has taken over our lunchtimes (and mornings and afternoons and evenings) this week, and is obviously a triumphant achievement. Crayon Physics Deluxe is so charming and serene, while letting you feel like a wizard as your drawings come to life. And World of Goo evoked memories in us of the first time we played Lemmings (a high compliment indeed). Winners lie beyond.

In the end, the Seumas McNally Grand Prize winner was Crayon Physics Deluxe. Many congratulations go to Petri Purho, for what is a remarkable and deserving winner.
