I'm done also! Phew...quite the list but many categories were no-brainers to fill quite easily.

Best of luck to all!

I got logged out  :angry: I guess I'll redo it with Stuport's form next time. It's a bit tedious.

EDIT : I did it just in time. I don't know if it's normal to get disconnected after a certain amount of time or if my problems come from my connection.

Nominations are over

The results are in! This year I want to try something different and present the nominees in a casual IRC ceremony.

AGS nominations will be revealed on Sunday, 5.2.2017 at 18:00 GMT in the #ags channel on irc.adventuregamestudio.co.uk.

Just pop in, chat, play a game of acro and hang around with friendly people.

Join the #ags channel on the official AGS IRC server at irc.adventuregamestudio.co.uk (see here for detailed instructions: https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/site/community/irc/).

Actually we're playing trivia now, so you must have joined the wrong channel.

That was a wonderful live ceremony too, highly enjoyable! ;-D  #ags is just the place to be.
Congrats to all the nominees, who are now rivaling with each other. Of course all the other good adventures won't be forgotten (only the bad ones will  := )

Add spoiler tag for Hidden:
Jk, I will play them too. Thanks for creating them.

That's what you get for not posting in the "For your Consideration" thread. It's not related to the month of release.

Exactly, just look at Captain D's Space Tunneler which was posted in the "For your Consideration" thread. It got an award and it was posted on the 1st of January. As a matter of fact, almost everyone tried to nominate it at the last year's awards.

haha, no I'm blaming myself! I totally forgot we released in in 2016, cause it had been so long since the release.  I forgot to come around and do a "For your consideration!" I only knew now because a friend had told me it was nominated for Voice Acting!  I hadn't checked the general forums in a bit, spend too much time lurking the technical ones!  There's a lot of great games nominated this year; I'm just kicking my own butt for not being pro-active!
