Ah! Yes, video games, of course. The IndieCade Red Carpet Awards Ceremony honors noteworthy achievements in the field of indie gaming over the course of the previous year – past winners include Fez and Limbo, for example.

Best known for creating The Guild and co-starring in Doctor Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Day is just about as endeared to the global gaming/nerd community as a person can get. She was even on an episode of House once.
