First, sailors, we wish you a happy new ludic and interactive year!
Few days ago, the 2011 IGF Main Competition’s finalists have been revealed.
Seasons after Fall didn’t make it but it’s not really surprising: with more than 400 entrants this year, the competition was quite tough and, compared to (pretty good and finished) games like Minecraft and Amnesia: The Dark Descent, our IGF demo was certainly not good enough to blow the IGF judges’ minds. Well, now we’ll have to wait until March and the IGF Awards ceremony in order to know the names of the winners in each category…but some of them already won our hearts.
Last November, when we discovered the 400 entrants for the main competition, we made a list of our favorite games. Some are finalists, some others are not. Of course there were quite famous games in this selection (Minecraft, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Cave Story, Overgrowth) but we’ll not talk about them today. So, here are 9 “not so famous” games that we really want you to discover: our 2011 IGF Main Competition’s favorites.
