The 12th Annual Independent Games Festival has announced 12 finalists for their Indie Games Challenge. Amongst the 12 games is one designed by one of our close personal friends here at the Deuce Project. Former WIDR DJ Matt Anderson's team is up for an award for their incredibly fun and interesting game entitled Dreamside Maroon.
Here is a look at this beautiful game:
