(Note: This is cross-posted from our official site blog.) What an amazing way to start a new year. This morning we were thrilled to learn that Bastion is a finalist in the 2011 Independent Games Festival in the categories of Excellence in Visual Art and Excellence in Audio. Congratulations to all the other finalists and honorable mentions — IGF finalists and winners are deterimined by a distinguished panel of judges from the independent game development community, and earning their recognition is a real honor considering all the many outstanding games they evaluate as part of the process.
We’re happy to see that the work we’ve done so far on Bastion’s presentation has struck a chord, as the game’s audio and visuals are so key to creating the atmosphere and world. All the more reason for us to keep on pushing as hard as we can on these fronts and in all our areas of focus. Now then, it’s back to work for us!
