Last day! Please nominate more games for Best Short Game - it would be a pity if we can't have 5 nominees in this category.

Also, please check if you did your votes for Best Character correctly - you need to select a game and write down the character name. We can fix typos and stuff later on, but you have to make sure that game and character match.

I don't know if it's a bug or whether I did something, but I discovered that my nominations in this category was thrown out of order. One name was set two times, and the other suggestions were pushed one place down the list, making the characters match the game directly above. I believe this must have happened during one of my (frequent) updates of the list, as my last suggestions have not been altered. (And by now I have played all the games, so I won't change it any further.)

In case there is a bug in the update function, I advice people to check if their votes match correctly.

Problem with nominating best character, for me anyway, is remembering the characters name.  :-\
so I'm happy that some of the authors, provided the characters names on the "for your consideration" thread.
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

Thanks for fixing your nominations!
We do our best to match up character names, i.e. nominations for "Guybrush", "Threepwood" and "Guybrush Threepwood" should all count for the same character.

Last few hours!

Anyhoo, I added a few more nominations to my vote ballot, just before the deadline!

Big congratulations to the nominees! There are some very good games on that list (and not one that doesn't deserve it).

However, I'm disappointed that Pedro's Adventures in Spanish wasn't nominated in anything, not even voice work. This was the year a full length game was released as a language learning device, and the failure to acknowledge that is unfortunate. One could simply watch one of the commercials to check out the voice work, but I guess it must mean it didn't have enough players from this community to receive the five nomination votes it deserved.

As for A Curious Pastime, which I nominated in almost every category possible, I would simply guess that first person games aren't as popular as 3rd. Oh well, it wasn't mentioned in the FYC thread either.

Voted! For me it has been super hard to decide between Strangeland and IOAWN in almost all the categories. Also bummed that Pedro Adventures is not there :( And thanks for the nomination for best voice for my little game!
Congrats everyone!

Oh, if you want to use a character as avatar during the awards, you can just export it directly from the game using the "export character" (right click on character) and provide that file.  ;)
Unless I'm mistaken, idle view is used for special action (if you want your character to do a special animation when you press the button). So just make sure you select which view you would like before exporting.

PS: (sorry to double post, but I just want to make sure this post will show up as new for those that are using "Show unread topics since last visit.")

Hi:
My name's Pijin Pastrana and I've been developing games with ags for a while. Robotragedy 1 and 2, Dr. Lutz and the time travel machine, Maverick Gunn and the Eye of Oggun, The manuscript of Sarmanyanha and Postcard Adventure. I believe this game's years nominations are very good and fair but I have to say that I don't feel treated with fairness because the backgrounds of Postcard Adventure can compete with some of the games like ossarium or breakfast on trappist 1, and I don't mean any disrespect to the developers, they are great but year after year the games I released , no matter how hard  I tried to achieve the best looks possible, NEVER GOT even a nomination. I wonder if the reason I'm cuban and out of the mainstream is the reason .
