Winners are selected by a panel of judges (comprised of 500 game creators) and will be announced on March 11 at 6:30 p.m. during the 2010 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
We were also pleased to see PopCap's Plants Vs. Zombies also made the list -- several times -- for Best Downloadable Game, Innovation and Best Game Design. We also want to give a shout-out to Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor for iPhone, which was nominated for Best Handheld Game. Good luck, everyone!
