|Session Name||Nuovo Sessions|
|Track / Format||Game Design|
[NOTE: The EGW organizers - Jon Blow, Chris Hecker, Doug Church, Robin Hunicke - were ultimately unhappy they could do a full session this year with the submitted games, so the next EGW will be at GDC 2011. However, the same day and time slot will now be taken by The Nuovo Sessions, organized by IGF co-organizers Matthew Wegner and Steve Swink, which looks at some of the new, alternative games and game concepts nominated for the Independent Games Festival's Nuovo Awards, along with prototypes and productions from like-minded individuals.]
A series of short presentations wherein game developers demonstrate and discuss their new and experimental games. Independent games, academic projects, and AAA mainstream games are all represented.
