The Independent Games Festival has announced the nominees for this years awards, and there are quite a few fan favorites in the mix.

After pouring over 650 main competition entries, the IGF jury revealed it has narrowed down its finalists to 30 game titles. All the games are made by independent game developers and they have all been released within the last year. While there were a lot of honorable mentions and there were even more amazing games that came out over the year, the jury had to make sure that it picked just the right games to go on as finalists for the prize.

The Awards are to take place on in March and will "precede the Game Developers Choice Awards, which recognizes the best games of the year across all sections of video game development." The winners will get tons of awesome prizes which will equate to almost $60k which will include the $30k Seumas McNally Grand Prize. You can check out the full list of nominees on its website, but some notable titles include:

The awards will be held at the San Francisco Moscone Convention Center on March 4 so, we'll be waiting in quiet anticipation until then.
