IDF is one of my favorite things about gaming. :)

Such a huge collection of creativity and talent that hasn't been spoiled by the influences of game publishing corporations.

Here are this years finalists:

Some cool games that I've seen so far:

Enviro-Bear 2000 (http://www.igf.com/php-bin/entry2010.php?id=39) - Basically, you're a bear, driving a car, with one paw (controlled by the mouse), and you have to collect fish and berries to survive the winter before hibernation. There isn't really any other way to describe it. You have to play it. This is pretty high up on the list of "weirdest games I've ever played".

Star Guard (http://www.igf.com/php-bin/entry2010.php?id=372) - Platform shooters don't get any more basic than this but its somehow addicting and its well made. :lol:

Closure (http://www.igf.com/php-bin/entry2010.php?id=150) - Braid let you mess with time, And Yet It Moves let you mess with gravity, and this game lets you mess with light. Its really hard to describe. You just have to watch the gameplay video. Its really impressive.

There are a ton of awesome games at IDF this year... just like every year. Browse the site and post anything interesting that you find! Even if its from a previous year, post it! :D
