Hotline Miami, FTL, and more up for awards

The annual Independent Games Festival will be taking place on March 27 during GDC 2013 and the list of main competition finalists has now been revealed. Pruned from a list of over 580 entries, the nominees here are truly some of the best indie games we've played this year.

Up for the Seamus McNally Grand Prize are Hotline Miami, FTL, Cart Life, Little Inferno and Kentucky Route Zero. Also up for a variety of awards in other categories are titles like Space Team, Thirty Flights of Loving, Super Hexagon, and Intrusion 2

What's interesting to note is that all finalists in this year's competition will have the chance to accept a distribution deal with Valve, so we could be seeing plenty of these titles coming to Steam in the next few months. You can check out the full list of nominees below.
