Big party to celebrate the winners!



How do the AGS Awards work?
(This is information mostly for new members, same procedure as every year)

Every year, the AGS community embarks on a quest to find the best games made in the last year. All games are eligible, that were added to the AGS Database in the year 2017. There is a For Your Consideration thread where authors can promote their games and players get a good overview what might be worth playing.

The awards are a two-step process: First there is a nomination phase where all community members can nominate the eligible games in several categories (it will be the same categories as last year). The top five games of each category make it to the voting. Again, all members of the community can vote on their favourite games.
The final result is then announced in a live ceremony that can be joined either with a special client or any regular irc client (details to follow).


Party like it's 1990 in this thread!

Nominations will start soon!

Game makers: Make sure you add your game to the For Your Consideration thread. You should add it before nominations start!

Players: Play the eligible games! A good starting point is the For Your Consideration thread or the AGS Database.
