December 15, 2010 -

Organizers of the 2011 Independent Games Festival announced the jury panel that will select the finalists and the winner of its Excellence in Visual Art award, a category which highlights innovation and quality in visuals for indie games.

This year, the jury will receive recommendations from over 150 IGF Main Competition judges (including former IGF winners, finalists and game development notables including Jon Chey, Soren Johnson, Brandon McCartin, Miguel Sternberg and Tom Sennett) as they consider the merits of each of the five finalists and eventual award winner.

The jury consists of the following:

- Craig Adams (as 'Superbrothers', art director & co-creator of the IGF award winning Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP.)

- Grant Duncan (founding member & artist on Hello Games' IGF finalist Joe Danger.)

- Jakub Dvorsky (founder, Amanita Design, creators of multiple IGF award winning games like Samorost & Machinarium.)

- Phil Fish (chief creative officer at Polytron Corporation, creators of the IGF award winning Fez.)

- Kyle Gabler (co-founder of 2D Boy, creators of IGF award winner World of Goo; co-founder of upstart indie dev Tomorrow Corporation.)

- Edmund McMillen (co-creator of IGF finalists Super Meat Boy, Coil.)

- Paul Robertson (lead animator, Ubisoft's Scott Pilgrim Vs the World: The Game, creator of short films 'Pirate Baby's Cabana Battle Street Fight 2006' & 'Kings of Power 4 Billion %'.)

- Ben Ruiz (art director, Flashbang Studios on games like Off-Road Velociraptor Safari & Minotaur China Shop.)

- Patrick Smith (as 'Vectorpark', creator of games & interactive toys like Windosill, Feed the Head & Levers.)

- Derek Yu (illustrator and designer of Spelunky & the IGF award winning Aquaria, EIC of indie community TIGSource.) 

All five Visual Art finalists will be announced in early January 2011. All finalists will be playable at the IGF Pavilion on the show floor during Game Developers Conference 2011, with the winner announced on the evening of March 2, 2011, at the IGF Awards, during the Game Developers Conference 2011.

InfophileSony's customer service has always been crap, but up till now it's been manageable crap. A few cases of people having to pay for being hacked at worst, the Other OS removal... This one is going to be much worse for them.03/28/2015 - 1:34pm
WymorenceWhen did Sony start doing the ransomware stuff...? other than the old BMG rootkit stuff that is.03/28/2015 - 12:45pm

MaskedPixelantehttp://www.newsarama.com/23947-axel-alonso-says-x-men-will-have-new-world-post-secret-wars.html Marvel gives 20th Century Fox the finger, takes their ball and segregates the mutant population in their own universe. According to rumors at least.03/27/2015 - 10:21pm
Papa MidnightSure thing!03/27/2015 - 9:00pm

Andrew EisenThat would mean either Nintendo's next home console will be out by next year or the next Zelda game is suffering a two year delay. Both extraordinarily unlikely.03/27/2015 - 8:34pm
Matthew Wilsonsome people are thinking we might have a Twilight Princess situation on our hands, what do you guys think?03/27/2015 - 8:01pm
MechaCrashMiyamoto once said "a delayed game is eventually good, a bad game is bad forever." While this can be taken to excess, it is good that Nintendo remembers it.03/27/2015 - 7:44pm
MaskedPixelanteYay for it not being a buggy mess like AC Unity. Boo that it got delayed til November 2016.03/27/2015 - 7:07pm
Andrew EisenAgreed. Considering we've seen nothing of the game (and those who did see it last E3, said it was super duper early) I would be quite surprised to see it this year.03/27/2015 - 5:28pm
Matthew WilsonI am sure star fox is 2016 too.03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
ZippyDSMleeThe primary reasons I would get a Nintendo system is Zelda and Metroid, Metroid prime collection was beyond words awesome even if 3 was the weakest one. I played TWP on the emulator I have Skyward Sword but like TWP I been putting it off…. LOL03/27/2015 - 5:14pm
Daniel LewisI actually thought star fox would be the game to be delayed,hopefully that isn't as well!03/27/2015 - 5:13pm
Daniel Lewiswoah post shared at the same time matthew,you just beat me!03/27/2015 - 5:11pm
