Yeah, if you mark a game as commercial, the download button is hardcoded to say "download demo". A limitation of the site design.

Fists of Murder
Forms
Horse Park
Lab Rat Maze!
Private Detective

Thanks!

Maybe we should filter the list for these categories in the future.

Yes, it would certainly make the nomination lists less overwhelming.

The extension gave me a chance to try a half-dozen more short games and add a couple of nominations, so thanks for that, cat and AGA!

O.M.G.

Thanks to everyone that voted for my racing game. It really means a lot to me.

Did the 5 vote limit stay in place this year or did it have to be removed?

It stayed in place, that's why in a few categories there are less than five nominees.
Luckily, several more people voted or added more games during the extension. That's why in most categories we got five nominees.

Thank you cat for presenting the results so quickly, and thanks to everyone who has participated in the nomination phase. Congratulations to all the nominees!

And as a souvenir of my gameplaying spree I am also trying to rate and comment as many of the games I've just played as I can :)
