The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) has announced that it is presenting a Melbourne, Australia-based exhibition named 'Best of the Independent Games Festival', a selection of the most innovative and exciting new computer games from the ‘Sundance Festival for Games’, San Francisco’s 2005 Independent Games Festival. 'Best of the Independent Games Festival' will open in ACMI’s Games Lab on Wednesday October 12th, simultaneously with Point and Tilt, a second showcase featuring the next generation of mobile phone games in development. Among the eleven games that will be showcased in the exhbition is Alien Hominid, which won the awards for Innovation in Visual Arts, Technical Excellent and Audience Favourite in the festival’s open category, and is a rare indie console title. ACMI’s Best of Independent Games Festival showcase will also feature many other major award winners from the 2005 festival: Gish, a physics based 2D game where the player becomes an animated ball of tar on a mission to save his girlfriend, and Steer Madness, a Grand Theft Auto-meets-Chicken Run adventure involving an escaped cow on a mission to save the environment. In addition, the festival will feature the visually stunning Wik and the Fable of Souls, a Tim Burton-esque 3D action-fable involving the archetypal unlikely hero battling a mysterious foe; N, a unique 2D puzzle / platformer; and Student Showcase winner Soccer Ref, a student-made 3D PC game which embroils the participant in a corrupt world of soccer refereeing, complete with hysterical players, bribery and emotional crowds. The exhibition will run from Wednesday October 12th to Sunday December 11th in the Games Lab at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, and more information is available on the official ACMI website. [The Independent Games Festival is operated by the CMP Game Group, which also runs Gamasutra.com.]
