GDC: Dar-win-ia a success at IGF

Jennie Lees

The results of the 2006 Independent Games Festival are in, and it's hats off to Darwinia. Scooping the Seumas McNally Grand Prize as well as the awards for Innovation in Visual Art and Technical Excellence, this leaves British-based Introversion's next game with a tough act to follow.

Other winners at the festival were:
Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space (Innovation in Audio)
Braid (Innovation in Game Design)
Dad 'n Me (Best Web Browser Game)
Dodge That Anvil! (Adult Swim Award)
Dofus (Audience Award)

The IGF also featured a modding competition for the first time, with four winners: Dystopia for Half-Life 2; Last Man Standing Co-op for Doom 3; Rose of Eternity - Chapter 1 - The Coming for Neverwinter Nights and Path of Vengeance for UT2004.
