Nessuna categoria per il “Game of Year” quest’anno per la nuova edizione dell’Independent Games Festival (IGF), sostinuita invece dal Seumas McNally Grand Prize. Tra i candidati più importanti troviamo Inside, Stardew Valley, Quadrilateral Cowboy, Event[0], Hyper Light Drifter e Overcooked. Oltre al premio, il vincitore riceverà una somma di denaro pari a 30.000 dollari.

Su trenta giochi nominati tra le varie categorie, è sicuramente Virginia a spiccare fra gli altri titoli, avendo ricevuto quattro nomination come Best Audio, Excellent in Narrative, Excellence in Visual Art, e Nuovo Award. Altri titoli, come Hyper Light Drifter, Inside e Event[0] si piazzano dietro Virginia con tre nomine ciascuno.
