Egg Files is Independent Games Festival Finalist
12:41 PM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story
Mac developer Flying Mikros Interactive has won Finalist standing for The Egg Files in the continuing Independent Games Festival Competition.
According to the IGF, these are the criteria it uses to select the Competition's finalists:
The jury for the Competition analyzes and rates each title based on the quality of its visual art, game design, audio (music and sound effects), programming (which includes bonuses for advanced features like multiplayer capabilities, and subtractions for bugs that show themselves during play), and the overall "gestalt" of the game (whether the game taken as a whole is fun, and how the visual art, game design, audio and programming fuse together into an enjoyable experience). IMG congratulates Flying Mikros on excelling at these qualities. The winners of the IGF Competition will be announced at the Game Developers Conference in San Jose next March.
The jury looks for games that stretch the boundaries of current game genres or invent new genres, rather than copying games already out on the market.
The jury looks for games that use technology creatively.
The jury looks for games that exhibit innovative game design.
We can't tell you much about The Egg Files other than to point you to a screenshot on the Flying Mikros web site, where a download and more info are promised soon.
