It was the 20th annual Independent Games Festival award show tonight at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Infinite Fall’s rust belt gothic adventure game Night in the Woods won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize as well as the Excellence in Narrative Award.

Arvi Teikari’s Baba Is You also won big — it was up in four categories and took home two awards.

The winners were selected from 35 finalists.

The event kicked off with a short speech from IGF chairperson Kelly Wallick, who delivered a message in support of diversity.

She gave a shoutout to games like Mulaka by Mexican developer Lienzo and Cameroon-based studio Kiro’o Games’ Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan as examples of titles by creators from different cultures.
