Hundreds of votes have been cast, and we finally have the winners of the annual CIC contests! It's hard to cast just one vote in each category when every project or site has made a major contribution to the community over the past year, but we appreciate this opportunity to recognize a few of the endeavors that had some of the largest impact. Here's who came out on top:
The winner for 2014 Fan Project of the Year is Wing Commander Flat Universe. They made a big splash when first announced in 2013, but progress accelerated last year with regular status updates, art previews and playable test releases. Their responses to initial player feedback has also helped earn a dedicated following.
The winner for 2014 Website of the Year is Daedalus Station! We don't always allow multiple nominees from a single person or group into the contest, but the Maslas Brothers have earned their top honors in both categories this time around. The Flat Universe game is its own distinct experience, and its website has distinguished itself as another premiere entity with a flashy WC-style interface, useful information and its own in-universe magazine. Either one could stand out on their own, but fans have come to appreciate both for what they've done over the past year!
