IGF 2009: The Shortlist

And the IGF shortlist has gone live. It's quite the selection of games - some already released, some only hinted at, some not even online. But it's worth remembering, there's been a solid classic amongst the shortlist for every year of the competition. What's this year's World of Goo? Can't wait to find out. The full list is beneath the cut, including links to all the site sites I could find. Some, as far as I can work out, don't have a web presence yet.

We've been talking, and we think that you should wear clothes
