Two murder mysteries and a game about smashing walls compete for the IGF grand prize


May 9, 2021

The Independent Games Festival Competition has announced the nominees for all categories in its 2021 awards. This year’s nominees for the Big Shiny known as the Seumas McNally Grand Prize—a prize that in previous years has gone to games like A Night in the Woods, Papers, Please, and Minecraft—are surrealist immortal detective adventure Paradise Killer, destruction sandbox Teardown, color-themed puzzle-platformer Chicory: A Colorful Tale, jazzy cosmic adventure Genesis Noir, ferrymaster afterlife sim Spiritfarer, and Umurangi Generation, a photo safari set in the “shitty future”.

Genesis Noir, a game that dares to ask “what if the Big Bang was more like The Big Sleep”, is doing particularly well for itself. As well as the grand prize it’s been nominated for Excellence in Audio, Excellence in Narrative, and Excellence in Visual Art.
