Welcome to the 3rd annual Indie of the Year awards, a celebration of the best independent games released in 2012 as well as the up and coming whom we hope edge towards release in 2013. For the next 30 days, it's time to recognize the dedication and creativty of so many developers who have given everything to their craft (which, in many cases amounts to years of development).

We expect the 2012 Indie of the Year to be our biggest yet - so make yourself count by finding your favorite indies and voting for them! Who will join Terraria and Minecraft previous winners who continue to be as popular as ever. Up until Jan 1st 2013 join us and help celebrate your community, culture and give thanks to the developers by voting for your favorite projects. Welcome to the 3rd Annual Indie of the Year Awards (also check out our App of the Year awards and Mod of the Year awards).
