Oh that was very nice :) You've got a really good feeling for harmonic, renaissance-like composing. Thanks for gifting that little gem to us. I would love to hear a more looped version of this in some fairytale-like medival adventure game at some time :)

Thanks Kumpel, I am teaching myself some music and decided this competition was a great way to get started.

I liked the entries so far, I hope to see more!

Will the baby have DLCs? :wink:

Congrats to you both!

Here is mine:

Thanks to ibispi for having uploaded it for me.

Adventure Related Talk & Chat / AGS Awards 2015: SOON
« on: 25 Dec 2015, 09:57 »
AGS Awards 2015 ceremony will be Sun 15th May at 8pm (UK) using the AGS Ceremony client.
A download link will be available here before the weekend. Previous versions will not be compatible.
Please check back soon for the download link!
NOPE! Wait for Jack Lucy to let us know when the client is ready.

Festive greetings, developers!

As usual, I am here to remind you that you need to add your game to the Database before the year is over if you want it to participate in the AGS Awards 2015!
Don't procrastinate, do it now!

This year I won't be running them, if you want to pick up the task (very simple task, 95% of the work is done by AGA and Snarky), contact one of them!

AGS wiki updated with the results


IRC log of the night.

Ceremony in less than 30 minutes!

Join via the The AGS Awards game-ceremony 2014 to follow the ceremony and via web browser IRC to chat and socialise!

It is decided. Ceremony will be at

The AGS Awards game-ceremony 2014


IRC client of your choice (like xchat) (tutorial here), or just use your web browser (warning: more of a resource hog and a high risk of failure!).

I didn't count on my "no" being an absolute veto; you can stick them up again if you want.

Not at all, it's too late anyway. Cast your votes folks!

Whoo boy! A date! Guess I have my deadline...

But what sort of off-brand Doodle version is that you're using, bici?

I recently had some problems with doodle, so I started looking for alternatives. Dudle seems solid and is open source (AGPLv3), so that was my pick (who knows, in the future it may be handy to host an instance on

Did the 22:00 columns just disappear?

Yes! It is paramount for the game-ceremony developer to be there (ready with ductape, ready to be applauded), and apparently Snarky goes to bed early (lucky him!).

Voting is over, time to decide when to hold the big ceremony!

Cast your preferences here! (All times are London time)

If you forgot, the way to attend is the The AGS Awards game-ceremony 2014 (thanks Snarky for having picked up the development!).

If you can't use the game (you run Linux, etc.), pick an IRC client (like xchat) (tutorial here), or just use your web browser (warning: more of a resource hog and a high risk of failure!).

Does anyone have a copy of I'm not crazy, right? - The Cell? Sounds interesting somehow...

AGS Archives link should do the trick (it is working for me). Indeed a nice game.

Titanic effort, bravo! :-*

Well, if you haven't noticed already, voting is open!
Vote here!

Nominations are out!
Grab them while they are hot HERE!

An interesting question here. Suppose game A contains characters Jim and Bob, who get ten votes each, and game B contains character Mary, who gets fifteen votes. Does the "best character" award go to game A, which scored 20 votes against B's 15; or should it go to game B, since Mary got more votes than either Jim or Bob?

Mary, I say, as it's not Best Characters but Best Character.

Shouldn't we be able to specify which character are we nominating for Best Character? This feature was available during last year's nominations. Now is probably too late to fix this though (yep, I have discovered this issue just a day before the deadline :))...

Duly noted, I'll see if we can whip something (someone?) for phase ][.

Nominating will close soon, I'll tally the votes ASAP. For now I can share 56 (fiftysix) people nominated.

PS: :D Sorry because I've posted this in a wrong forum room and obviously it's not made with AGS Engine. so I've made a post here. I hope it's all ok now :-D

This is totally the appropriate forum room!

Well bici, IMHO it does impact the choice and might even have a slight impact on the final outcome. I'll try to explain it following your example:

1. I voted AGW as "Best Non Adventure"
2. The vote for AGW as "Best Non Adventure" gets lost.
3. This vote would not have gone lost if I would have chosen another game that IS correctly from the "Best Non Adventure".
4. So that 'other game' now does miss a change to get a vote from me...

As long as there are 'lost votes' there are games that could have got more votes and thus this system does 'slightly, very slightly' influence the outcome of the total votes per game and therefor the final rankings.

Indeed indeed, duly noted!

I'm *not* nitpicking on the chosen voting system with lost votes at all, and it's also *not* something I'm pushing to be changed, I was just wondering about this.... :)

Comments/feedback are always welcome! As now there is a bit of a dichotomy between the Awards categories and the DB; at the first database revamp opportunity I'll try to sneak the appropriate modification in!

Tiny downside is, these crossed out intruders are lost votes in away. Votes that could have been gone to other games, not from the intruder category.
But hey, it is indeed the easiest way :)

Mhhh I am not sure I am following you precisely. There is no limit to the number of games you can nominate, so those votes are lost but wouldn't impact your other choices.
E.g. if I nominate Red Hot Overdrive, ACRONYM and A Golden Wake for "Best Non Adventure", AGW is not considered but that wouldn't impact your other choices.
Or not?

Why does ALL the games show up for every category on the nomination page?

We started having problems, mhh, some 4 years ago when new categories (in the DB) where introduced (is a "MAGS Game" a short game? Maybe a Non adventure one? etc. Same story with "non categorised"). At first I PM'd CJ/AGA with relevant changes, but it is easier to let people vote and cross out the intruder.
