Cobalt has been nominated as an Independent Games Festival 2011 finalist in the Excellence in Audio category! So incredibly well-deserved nomination (in my not so humble opinion), thanks to the great work by anosou (music tunes and jingles) and thewreck (sound effect engineering). With help of friends, of course The jury’s motivation:

Cobalt also received honorable mentions in Excellence in Technology and Excellence in Visual Art!
