Melbourne’s ACMI Will Have The Best Independent Games Of 2012

The Best of the Independent Games Festival 2011 exhibition at Melbourne’s Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) is set to end on March 25. Gloomy news, I know — my socks have been thoroughly marinated in a pool of liquid human despair formed by my tears. But! The leaking of said sad-fluids was premature, to say the least, because come March 27, ACMI will host the Best of IGF 2012.

The new exhibition will run until July 8 of this year and admission should be free, going by the cost of the centre’s current IGF showcase. Gamasutra reports that all the top titles from this year’s festival, including Polytron’s Fez (the grand prize winner), Spelunky from the ever-impressive Derek Yu and Dustforce by Brisbane-based Hitbox Team. In total, 14 games from IGF 2012 will be on display.

ACMI tends to run some excellent exhibitions — the gaming-centric ones are no exception — so if you have a chance to check it out, you should — damp socks be damned.
