The only bad thing about this is that everybody will blame the Kinect for any other shortcomings the game has, as if game development is an RTS where developers have to choose between "quality game", "game with multiplayer component", or "game with optional Kinect functionality", and they only have enough units to build one of the three.
Funny thing: It's EXACTLY like that. The RTS genre was originally invented to emulate game development.
So, Fez wins IGF like 15 years in a row and then the one calendar year it comes out and it's not nominated for anything?
Well, whatever. I don't understand this IGF business but Fez will continue to rock and I will continue to use IGF as a barometer for indie games I should care about (although I've already played a surprising number of games on this list. Guess I'm indie, bitches.)
