Obvious picks include the likes of The Cat and the Coup for the Documentary Award, and Games of Nonchalance for the World and Story Award. Ian Bogost did pretty well for himself too, picking up two awards for his Atari Video Computer System based game A Slow Year. The real surprise is the Jury Award going to Groping in the Dark - we know barely anything about this game, but clearly it's going to be something to look forward to!
Head over to the IndieCade site for all the details, including the celebrities who showed up - apparently the Old Spice Guy presented an award!
