Watch Nathan Vella & Robin Hunicke host the IGF & GDC awards next week

Capybara Games' Nathan Vella returns this year to host the IGF awards, and Funomena co-founder Robin Hunicke makes her debut as host of the 16th annual Game Developers Choice Awards!

As the game industry prepares for the 30th edition of GDC next week, organizers want to quickly remind you that both the Game Developers Choice Awards and the Independent Games Festival awards will be streamed online so everyone can take part. 

Capybara Games founder Nathan Vella returns this year to host the Independent Games Festival awards, now in its 18th year of honoring and celebrating the work of independent game makers.

The same stage will play host to veteran game designer and Funomena co-founder Robin Hunicke, who this year makes her debut as host of the 16th annual Game Developers Choice Awards!

The ceremonies kick off at 6:30 PM Pacific on Wednesday, March 16th during GDC 2016 in San Francisco. The IGF Awards are up first, followed by the GDC Awards.

If you can't attend in person, don't worry: the sequential award shows will be livestreamed right here on Twitch Wednesday evening. It's always a fun, upbeat show, so don't miss it!

More information about either the 16th annual Game Developers Choice Awards or the 18th Independent Games Festival is available at their respective websites.

GDC 2016 itself will take place March 14-18th at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. For more information on GDC 2016, visit the show's official website, or subscribe to regular updates via FacebookTwitter, or RSS.
