Gone Home - The Fullbright Company

The Developer's Choice Award, The Media Choice Award and The Audience Choice Award winners will be announced this Sunday at 5pm.

Have you played any of these winning titles, I haven't and from what my friends say Gone Home should not be a part of this list. Even though Gone Home won for audio design it's picture is featured on gaming sites for the award winners. IndieCade PR better provide photos of the actual award given out next year or for the next round of awards so gaming sites have some visual aid. Gaming sites themselves might take pictures of the winners too.

LA Times has a nice preview article up for the event.

Don't forget to play IndeCade Bingo from the site's comic maven Andrew Gallardo.

You're editor-in-chielf will be at the convention all day and night today playing, interviewing and capturing the moments when equipment fails for your pleasure. Do make it out if you can, you don't want to be some weirdo who passes on the chance to play video games outside!

Have to try Shovel Knight!
