The ceremony will take place on
March 30 at 20:00 GMT

There will be a beta of the client out about a week before the date for public testing. Details to follow.

How does it work? If I recall correctly it was once held on an IRC client, but I've been out of the loop for a few years.

There's an AGS multi-player client that connects through IRC (originally developed by Wyz, Dualnames and JimReed; this year's version is being done by me, Kastchey, Wyz, selmiak and Ali). You can still join through IRC as well, though you only get a small part of the experience.

Here's a recording of last year:



That reminds me: is anybody planning on recording or livestreaming it again this year?

Yeah a live stream would be helpful if someone could arrange that!

I'm curious why you would rather connect to a livestream than just join the event yourself through the client?

All going well, I'll be recording it again this year and uploading it to YouTube shortly after the event.

Darn, how did I manage to miss my game award :P. What was I doing? Probably sleeping...


It's so cool to see this networking in work, seem like magic (knowing limits of AGS).

Because there are always questions about this: The final AGS Awards client will be made available on the morning of the ceremony, as a 250 MB download.

If you have downloaded the Beta Test, it will not work. You must download and use the final release version.

A quick reminder: The ceremony will happen tomorrow! There will be a client available for Windows, Linux and Mac, so no excuses :)

I thought Snarky said there woundn't be a Mac build, but a wrapper... am I wrong? (just wondering, I don't own a Mac)

I don't know, maybe I misunderstood him - I know nothing about Mac  ???

Maybe he will clarify.

A lot can change in a week :D So, yes! We've managed to port the AGS Awards client over to Mac as well!  (nod)

I'm not a Mac user, but it's great that you made it happen for the people who are.

I'm too tired to make a proper announcement, but there's no reason to delay.

Here's the final (barring any major unexpected issue) version of the AGS Awards client (v4.10). Thanks to the efforts of our awesome porting teams, it's available natively on Windows, Mac and Linux:

Windows (.7z) (181 MB)
Mac (.7z) (188 MB)
Linux (.tar.gz) (228 MB)

The ports should be identical, with one exception: Clipboard support (copy/paste to and from other applications) only works on Windows.
Note that the Linux build depends on a version of libpng. If not installed on your system, you can get it here: https://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/libpng12-0
