The organisers of the Independent Games Festival have announced their shortlist of finalists for 2009.
The awards are usually a source of great interest, often plucking a stone-cold-classic from the depths of obscurity. Previous years have brought the likes of Braid, Castle Crashers, N+ and World of Goo to wider attention.
You've probably heard of at least a few of this year's contenders, but we're willing to bet that there's secret treasure to unearth. Don't expect a finished product from everything on the list, however, as some of these don't even have websites. Links are included where appropriate. (We're keeping a particular eye on Zeno Clash, Dyson and Machinarium because we're suckers for pretties.)
Thanks to Rock, Paper, Shotgun for doing the hard work collecting the links.
