Darwinia chosen as IGF Finalist

Postby Chris » Mon Dec 12, 2005 10:41 am

We are extremely pleased to announce that Darwinia has been chosen as a Finalist in the 2006 Independent Games Festival. The IGF is a yearly event that takes place in San Jose, California and gives awards and cash prizes to outstanding independent games released over the past year. A good analogy of its function would be the Sundance Film Festivel - but for Games instead of Films. Previous IGF winners have included such great games as Oasis and Gish.

Darwinia is nominated in the following categories:
- Seumas McNally Grand Prize
- Innovation in Game Design
- Technical Excellence
- Innovation in Visual Art
- IGF Audience Award

This means we will be travelling to California next March for around a week, and we will demonstrate our game personally to the judges and the worlds assembled media. The prizes are incredible this year, with Introversion up for a potential $30,000 victory pot if we win all those categories. Previous winners and finalists have also picked up extensive media coverage, which can only be a good thing.

well Chris it sounds like you can't lose! media coverage for free, a holiday to California (sorry, I mean a work orientated expedition :D ), and a possibility of a large amount of money (enough for you to live off while developing your next game, yay!

Have fun in Cali. Let us know when the date is closer... We only live about five hours from San Jose (unless you really did mean San Hose... I don't know where that is). If we are in the Bay Area, I'll buy y'all a round of drinks. :)
