IGF Finalist Showcase: Seamus McNally Finalists '09


With the IGF finalists announced, game makers only have a short while longer to find out the best of the best in indie games from last year. From the best overall game to the one with the most impressive art, there's several different categories for indie game designers to aspire to be the top of. This week we're going to take a look at a few of the games that have made it to the finals.

Well, we've seen all the other categories that the IGF has to offer, so it's time for the biggest and baddest category of them all: the Seamus McNally Grand Prize finalists.
