The Independent Games Festival awards and the Developers Choice Awards were in full swing at about 4:30AM our local South African time. One of South Africa’s own game developers, QCF Design, was nominated for an IGF award in the category for Excellence in Design for their rogue-like game Desktop Dungeons. They were up against other titles like Faraway, Minecraft, Super Crate Box and Nidhogg.
They won, and netted themselves a cheque for $2500. Needless to say, all of us here at Lazygamer are ecstatic for the guys at QCF. Danny, Rodain and Marc, we are so proud of you guys for winning the award after all the work you’ve put into Desktop Dungeons. We’re especially proud that you won against indie behemoth Minecraft.

According to the liveblog over on Joystiq, upon going up to accept the award, the guys from QCF said â€œWe kind of didn’t write a speech because ofâ€¦ Minecraft.â€
Once again (and I’m sure our readers will echo the sentiment in the comments bellow) well done QCF we are incredibly proud of you guys.
