Indie of the Year

Welcome to the 7th Annual Indie of the Year Awards, a celebration of the years finest indie games chosen by you and us. For the next 4 weeks it is up to you to vote for your favorite indie games so that they may make the top 100 which will be announced on the 11th of December.

Last year we saw galaxy-traversing sandbox Space Engineers take out first place, followed with the tactical shooter Squad as runner up with the 90's nostalgia inducing Black Mesa finishing third on the podium. Read our players choice or editor's choice for the full results and start voting to help award the prestigious title of the 2016 Indie of the Year. Good luck everyone!
