Independent Games Festival 2009: Coders - go!

And - hark! - there was a great call across the land. And with it, there was a sound like locusts, as a million coders started typing code and similar. The Independent Games Festival have made their call for entrants for the 2009 competition. People who want a crack at the assorted prizes - past winners include everything from World of Goo to Darwinia to Audiosurf to Braid to Aquaria to other splendid pieces of awesomeosity - have from now until November 1st to get their entrants in. People for the Student competition have another couple of weeks, until the 15th, as presumably the IGF people know students are slack. They've announced new judges for this year too, including Kyle "World of Goo" Gabler, Rod "Sims" Humble, Soren "Civ4" Johnson, Chaim "Spore" Gingold, Petri "Crayon Physics" Purho and Jim "Rock Paper Shot..." waitaminute! Jim! You never told me about this.

I'd mock Jim more, but I'm doing it too. Any excuse to play Indie games, us.
