It’s time once again – the 2018 Indie of the Year awards have commenced! These player-voted awards are the original and best way for gamers to make it known how much they appreciate the creative works of independent developers. It’s becoming harder and harder to find those breakout, must-play indie games now that platforms are becoming ever more open, so do your part and vote for your top indie picks, then get all your friends to vote too! By the end of the month, your votes will have determined the 2018 Indie of the Year!
Phase 1: Nominations Begin
Over the next 10 days, a voting booth will appear on every indie game’s profile page. Simply visit the profile for the game you wish to vote for, and hit the “vote now” button to submit your preference.
Phase 2: The Top 100
Nominations will close on December 10, and will then be tallied to determine the Top 100 games of the year. This list will be revealed on December 11, and then, voting on games in this Top 100 will begin for another 10 days, to determine the 2018 Indie of the Year!
Phase 3: Indie of the Year 2018 Revealed
Come Christmas, the final awards will be rolled out over a series of days. The announcements will be presented as follows:
- Editors Choice Awards (22nd December)
- Players Choice: Unreleased Indie Game (27th December)
- Players Choice: Indie of the Year 2018 (29th December)
Promote Your Game To Help Get Votes!
Developers, you should make as much noise about your game as possible to get it in front of potential voters! Luckily, we’ve created some tools to help you do just this.
Win Games for Voting
Every member from the community who votes has a chance to win a game from our #modlove collection. The more you participate, promote the awards and encourage your friends to vote the better your chance. In addition to this the winning mod teams will be heavily promoted across our network, get the prestigious honor of being able to include the award badge where-ever they damn well please, and be introduced to publishers interested in taking their idea to the next level.
