The 2016 Independent Games Festival has revealed the finalists for its upcoming awards ceremony to take place at this year's Game Developer's Conference.
Last year's GDC ended on a cliffhanger for me. Ensnared in an Oculus Rift at the Experimental Gameplay Workshop, I was scrambling to defuse a virtual bomb while my teammates franticly analysed printed documents explaining how to disarm the explosive device I was trying to describe to them. Amid the panicked discussion, I heard a woman's voice say something about how they needed to clear the room - something I found odd as the program stated the event would be running for another hour. "Just a minute," I muttered to the unseen voice.
