Congratulations to all the nomenees. There are a couple games I haven't played yet. I guess I know what I have to do now.  ;-D

Most of the nominees are commercial games. I wonder if the devs might be persuaded to offer a little discount or something for anyone wanting to play all the games in order to vote.

There were several huge sales just now. Winter, Chinese New Year, what have you. People interested in these games had their chances regardless of nomination status.

What I'm trying to say here is that the usual peddlers of gaming software need some time to approve of sales or something.

It was merely a suggestion to potentially increase voters. I believe it was suggested in the past and one or two devs took up the idea.

Of the commercial games listed (which I believe are Detective Gallo, Football Game, Lamplight City, and Unavowed) all but one are priced at $14.99 USD, and Football Game is $1.99, meaning you can get them all for $46.96.

I don't want to hijack this thread and turn it into a debate about how much indie games should cost and all that, but I'll just say that it's very difficult to persuade people to pay $14.99 for an indie adventure game, and offering a discount to increase the voter pool just feels cheap to me.

No disrespect meant to Stupot, but as someone trying to make a living from these games, this is something I feel very strongly about.

We could try getting the people who already bought and played them to vote instead. Problem with THAT is they would need to register here.

$15 sounds like a fair price to me for what it is, even a bit of a bargain. It's more often the content of modern adventure games that would put me off a purchase.

It's a shame gog.com don't host more top notch adventure games. They can be f***heads too sometimes. They only have 2 of those 4 commercial releases, and they don't even have Until I Have You, to take another example.

Or people could just watch Let's Plays if they don't want to pay for a game just to be able to vote. I think there are Let's Plays available for all nominated commercial games. It might not be the best option but if your money is tight it's at least a possibility.

Big thanks to AGA, for providing the nomination and voting scripts every year!

He also updated the Wiki-page, that also contains links to the individual games:

The first link in the box above, "AGS Awards votes", gets me "Only AGS Awards admins are allowed here. Begone, intruder!"

The second link, "here", gets me

The "here" link works fine for me (redirects to the AGS nominees wiki page), although I have the same problem as Click with the voting page.
