Indie of the Year

Back for an 8th time, welcome to the 2017 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 plenty of hard work pay off for RimWorld who won the players choice after exploding in popularity here and on Steam. It wasn't alone with SUPERHOT smashing its way into second place and Stardew Valley taking out third. If you want to see the full players choice and editor's choice from 2016, look no further.

A lot has changed since 2016 with Steam closing down greenlight and opening the floodgates for more indie games than ever before. With no outlet to vote on greenlight anymore, we expect you to smash the vote button for your favorite indies here (and if your favorite game isn't listed encourage the team to add it). There have been some huge releases this year, so show your support, make hard working game developers feel our love and soon we will announce the 2017 Indie of the Year. Good luck everyone!
