IGF reveals student finalists for 2010 competition

10 winners selected from record pool of 190 entries

Ten finalists have been chosen for the Independent Games Festival's 2010 Student Showcase, a competition held to recognise outstanding indie game development taking place in schools and universities around the world.

The ten winning games were chosen from a pool of 190 entries, with an overall winner set to be crowned at an event held during this year's GDC in San Francisco.

Previous notable IGF Student Showcases winners have included DigiPen's Narbacular Drop, which later became Valve's acclaimed Portal, and Hogeschool van de Kunsten’s The Blob, which was later released onto consoles by THQ.

"We’re delighted to see the IGF Student Showcase continuing to highlight some outstanding student-created titles from all over the world," said Simon Carless, IGF's chairman. "This year's record entries have once again unearthed some outstanding titles, and we're looking forward to showing them to the public at GDC this March."

The full list of finalists can be found on the offical site. IGF's main competition winners were announced earlier this month, and a separate set of finalists for the mobile competition will be revealed in late January.
