Writer/producer Dan Pinchbeck and composer/audio designer Jessica Curry from the mod development team thechineseroom picked up the award for Best Story/World for the 2009 IndieCade awards at Sony Pictures in LA last night.

IndieCade, described by the LA Times as gaming's Sundance Festival, is one of the most prestigious independent gaming events in the world, and showcased some of the most innovative new games being made today. Pinchbeck said "The quality of the finalists was just amazing - there are some really fantastic games here and we can't believe Dear Esther was selected to win. The competition was really fierce, and so many other games could have walked away with the award and we'd have been happy for them to have taken it."

Dear Esther was the only mod selected as a finalist for the awards, which range from mixed-reality to iPhone apps. A full list of the finalists can be found at www.indiecade.com
