The 2009 Independent Games Festival comes to San Francisco in March. This is where you'll find the highest concentration of artistry, passion, and innovation in the games industry. Over at Boing Boing Offworld, Brandon created an incredibly in-depth guide to the games that will be celebrated at the festival. From Boing Boing Offworld:
Braid, World of Goo, Darwinia, Everyday Shooter, Crayon Physics, Audiosurf -- all truly became names of their own following IGF successes. In the spirit of looking forward, then, and because Offworld's initial mention of the 2009 winners amounted to little more than a rote list of names, I've taken the time to sit down with all of this year's finalists and try to contextualize each entry (bar those cases where my hardware unfortunately failed me).
Inside you'll find as many video demos as I could muster, links and mentions to those games currently available to try for yourself, and an independent summary of each of the 22 finalists this year.
