Independent Game Festival 2010 Finalists Announced

After a slew of judges (including yours truly) played through more than 300 selections of indie games, the finalists for the 2010 Independent Games Festival have been announced.

One of my favorite parts of the Game Developers Conference every year is perusing the Independent Game Festival finalists. There's more innovation in that booth than several years worth of big-budget video games combined. That's not to say I don't love those big-budget extravaganzas, but the IGF finalists aren't (usually) in it for the money -- it's the love of game.

Here are your finalists, complete with links with images and descriptions:
