Congrats to all winners, nominees, and the wider community to helped make the awesome 2020 bunch of games in some way. Thanks Kastchey, Snarky et al for making the ceremony possible.

Cat was probably being modest leaving out the committee awards:

Lifetime Achievement: Cat
Innovation Award: EriOo

Both very well deserved.

Congrats all winners, Postmodern especially! Both Billy Masters and UWS were a lot of fun. And Zniw might have the best AGS animation ever :).

Very fun ceremony this year. Large turnout, no big crashes, and we have finally answered the question of just how many trophies will fit in one character's inventory.  :=

Apologies folks - I'm in an awkward time zone so couldn't quite make it to the awards unfortunately. Apparently Ponch has got my trophy!

No problem Monkey, sorry that the time slot we picked made it difficult for you to join! Congrats on winning an award, though I'm  not sure if you can get Ponch to hand it over  :sealed: He seems to like trophies.

Huge congratulations to all winners and nominees of the awards and also to everyone who released a game in the last year. I might not have managed to play every single one, but I can say with confidence that every game I played had some enjoyable elements. Also congratulations to Cat and eri0o for the special awards and thank you to Snarky, Kastchey and everyone else involved in organising the awards. You did an amazing job. And last but not least, well done to my fellow presenters.

Wow, 20 years of the Awards and 10 years with the Client. This community is fantastic!

The awards were a lot of fun, congratulations to all the winners! And a great choice for eri0o and cat, they both deserved it.

Hopefully, Postmodern Adventures managed to bring all his trophies home! :P

Thanks to everybody who made the awards possible and who created great games! Next year make those games a little worse, though, so I have a chance of winning an award. ;)

Next year, you just have to beat If On A Winter's Night, Four Travelers to get one.  8-0 Or perhaps make a short, voiced game and name it Demo.  (laugh)

It was a fantastic ceremony! A coder friend of mine was freaking out about what AGS could do with the client. And yes, it seemed like magic!
It was a surprise for me, i though that Off the Clock and Zniw Adventure were going to be the absolute winners (all my votes went to that games and Broken Windows)!
Congrats to the rest of the winners and congratulations for this wonderful and powerful community!!
