It’s that time of year again folks. The Finalists for the 2009 Independent Games Festival have been announced. Ever since I discovered this festival a few years back, I’ve been coming back yearly to see the new games that make it to the finals, and then ultimately win the competition. This year’s winners will be announced in late March, but definitely go and play with the games that are listed (many are a free download). This competition usually has some really creative games that are very different (FUN!) from most mainstream games available.
