There seems to be some inconsistency with regards to the early access titles where as some games are marked as "released" (7 days to die, Running with Rifles) while others are "upcoming" (Interstellar Marines, verdun). What is the staff's take on this?

They should probably all be in the released category, since they are playable despite been in an alpha state I would have thought?

Might need to consider an EA category with it becoming a popular trend to help indies get a foot through the door?

Glad to have Cogmind in the Top 100! A bit unexpected since I've yet to broadly advertise, but happy nonetheless!

Side note: Seems like there may be a problem with the script on the Top 100 page, because the Roguelikes category under "upcoming games" doesn't always open properly, especially after having opened other categories before that one. Same issue in multiple browsers.

I can't believe we made the top 100 (Tabletop Simulator). We had no idea about this until pretty late, so this is such an honor to make! Thank you everyone! :)

I would like to thank everyone who supported my project to nominations. This alone is a huge success for me.

I keep my fingers crossed for all projects in the TOP100 - all games look great and promising.

It is not important to win but to take part! It's a great experience and satisfaction.

www.indiedb.com/games/top is just the current top 100 over the last hour / 24 hours it doesn't = votes which is what determines the top 100. People should still check out your game, looks great: Indiedb.com
