Two annual independent game awards are spinning up to recognize the best projects from last year:
- Mod DB’s 2008 Mod of the Year Awards have begun; you can vote on nominees such as Warsow, Wheels of War, and World of Padman. The second round of voting will begin on January 17th, and the final winners will be announced at the end of February.
- The finalists for the 2009 Independent Games Festival have been announced, which include the native Linux games Dyson, an abstract real-time strategy title, and the previously mentioned Between. There’s also a few Flash games: Coil, IncrediBots, and You Have To Burn the Rope.
