IGF 2008 finalists unveiled

Get your indie awards on.

The organisers of the Independent Games Festival have announced the finalists for 2008 competition.

The final list is posted on the IGF website and includes links to screenshots, videos and playable prototypes where possible.

As you'll see from the list, there's more music-based content than usual, with Audiosurf, Cinnamon Beats, Synaesthete and Fret Nice - the latter a platform game designed for guitar controllers - brushing up against the likes of Crayon Physics Deluxe.

That one sees players drawing 2D objects on a lovely papery background, which then take on physical properties and interact with one another so that you can solve puzzles.

It will fight for the grand prize with the aforementioned Audiosurf, Hammerfall, Noitu Love 2: Devolution and World of Goo.

All of the finalists will be on display at the IGF Pavilion during next February's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, with the winners announced on the 20th.
