Thanks both! Hoping Captain Disaster gets some noms as we've put a lot of work into it, but of course there are many other games that have had a great deal of work go into them too. There are some fantastic games up for nomination this year (as always!).

Good luck Captain D! I have already bought the game and played it on livestream and now voted, so hopefully you start winning "big-league". grin

Neofeud is also of course one of the possible games on the list for nomination. :3

Thanks Sandy! smile

When the nominations are set and voting for winners of each category is open I'll post the link - I expect it'll be 2-3 weeks after the nominations phase closes (which is 10th February).

Just wanted to share a notice regarding the voting:

However, one of the commercial adventure games got some votes for "Best Freeware Game", "Best Short Game" and "Best Non-Adventure Game". While I appreciate the enthusiasm regarding nomination, please only nominate games for the categories that apply wink

Turns out that the game in question was in fact my game - I've even got 3 votes for "Best Freeware Game" !! blush - just posting this here to hopefully avoid possible further confusion. (One possibility is that people mixed it up in their heads with the other Captain Disaster game, which *IS* freeware.) Of course it may not be Boomers who accidentally voted in the wrong category, it's just a possibility.

Thanks everyone! Happy nominating to those who haven't already - I'm hoping my buddies who made Legend of Hand and Neofeud do well too. smile

Will have no fingernails left by the time actual voting starts! laugh

Thanks - as long as it's not in "Best Freeware Game", "Best Short Game" or "Best Non-Adventure Game"!! laugh (All other categories are fine unless I've remembered one wrong.)

Obviously delighted that Captain Disaster got 7 nominations, and that AGS Cycles got a nod for best non-AG. Unexpected at the Rising Star getting a nom for Best Music / Sound was nice too - I did the SFX for that game, though the nom would have been far more to do with Eric's awesome music score.

Very happy to see games from lots of dev friends in the mix too, especially Legend of Hand, Neofeud and A Tale of Two Kingdoms: Deluxe Edition getting multiple nominations.




Actual voting will be from 13th February till 7th March, with the awards ceremony soon after that (to be voted on by the AGS community).

If nothing else it's worth trying out some of those games nominated in the Short Game category as they are all gems! & probably won't take you more than an hour at the most each to complete! smile

Awards ceremony has just finished - it was an absolute blast!

Captain Disaster in: Death Has A Million Stomping Boots won in the following categories:

- Best Voice work
- Best Character
- Best Puzzles (joint win with 3 games tied)

Our friends SilverSpook Games won Best Music and Sound, and other great devs won the rest of the awards. Great to see the diversity of high quality games produced by the AGS Community.
