AGS Awards
« on: 30 Dec 2019, 10:00 »
Hello guys,

I have an easy (but maybe stupid) question: How do AGS Awards work?

1) Do we need to upload our games somewhere or simply by registering them on the AGS download page is enough?

2) Who votes for these games? Is it admins/veteran users or the whole community?

3) When and where does this event take place?


Thank you and Happy New Year to everyone! :)

Questions are never stupid... and these are no exception.

1) Uploading it to the AGS DB is enough.
    - All you need to do is: Make the game, upload it, post/register it on the AGS DB. Games are eligeble by registering on the DB date... so if you make and released a game in 2019 but forgot to register it to the DB, your game is not eligible for 2019, but first when you register it.

2) The entire community. Every single AGSer votes for they favorite... all twelve of us...  (laugh)

3) Date isn't set yet, but should be around feb/march?
    - It will soon be announced and we even get to vote for the day and time that works best for us.
    - Also, a new thread will soon be opened where you can "promote" your game and remind AGSers that you did a game this year and in which categories it might apply to. Stay tuned.  :-D
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Thanks a lot Cassie!

Been around since 2012, but never participated in AGS awards, always seen only the results months after.
