The nominees for the Nordic Game Awards 2011 have been announced, with heavy hitters like Just Cause 2 and Alan Wake rubbing shoulders with indies that include Jesus vs Dinosaurs and Vikings on Trampolines.

The awards ceremony -- now in its fifth year -- will take place May 11 and will be hosted by former IGDA executive director Jason Della Rocca, who is "famously known for his Canadian yet Nordic sense of humor," according to the event's organizers.
