I’ve been so busy I forgot to mention the AGS awards here. The annual award ceremony just took place after the completion of the community voting and the best AGS games of the year have been named. If you’re looking for something new to play, the list of award winning games would be a great place to start!
For right now, there isn’t a text list of awards, but Super Scottish Hero has created an amazing award ceremony with characters from the games coming in to accept the awards. It’s really well put together.
This year, Nanobots took down three awards, including best puzzles, best gameplay, and a little something for me: best programming! Congratulations to Erin, who tied for the author with the most nominations this year, raking in a total of 15 split between Nanobots and Little Girl in Underland, which snagged the award for best non-playable character.
It was my second Best Programming Award and my fourth overall. And Erin’s up to five, I think… Thanks to everyone who voted!
And nice work to everyone who made a game this year! I wish I had more time to play them all!
