AGS Awards 2020

Welcome to the AGS Awards, the event where you, the player, choose the best games of the year!


Step # 0 - play them games!
You have some time to play games made in 2020. Do it!
Step # 1 - nomination time!
Select games you deem worthy in each category!
Step # 2 - vote, folks!
Pick from the nominees and we get a winner!
Step # 3 - party!
Big party to celebrate the winners!



It's this time of the year again - we want to have a look at the games that were created last year and vote for our favourites.

Check out the games that were made last year - you can find them in the AGS Database.
You can also have a look at the For Your Consideration thread and see some recommendations.

The sooner you start playing, the better!



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

Spoiler: ShowHide
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 2020. 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 (as long as they've received at least five nominations). 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.


Party like it's 1990 in this thread!

To be honest, Kastchey and Snarky will be taking over a lot of the wrangling. Due to real life commitments, I don't have that much time anymore.

Have you played some of last year's games already? Are you ready to nominate?

How do nominations work? I was under the illusion that it'd be enough for myself to suggest my game in the other thread. But maybe I need to pay someone to nominate it  :=

Quoting the first post (maybe I should not put this information in hide tags, but I thought everyone knows how it works already)
