The jurors narrowed their selections down from the over 600 games that were submitted for 2012. According to IMGA founder Maarten Noyons:

This year’s submissions have been quite exceptional. We have never seen such a broad spectrum of games genres in the submissions. For two days the jury has reviewed hard core triple A games, poetic indie games, educational games and a growing number of narrative games. Developers worldwide are bringing ever-increasing standards of quality and originality to gamers across the globe. All 57 nominated games are worth exploring.

This year’s nominees are spread across five different categories – Excellence in Innovation, Excellence in Visuals, Excellence in Gameplay, Excellence in Storytelling, Best Social Games, and Best Serious Game.
