Sometimes I think that my Randy & Manilla game, with the 2nd alpha and the pre-beta together they have made a significant update for the project during this 2020. And yet they don't even mention it in this article.

Hey Ofi, can understand being frustrated that your game didn't make this list. There is a lot of competition when it comes to the indie scene nowadays though, and there were a lot of other games that just missed out on being featured too.

Would encourage yourself and any other indie developer whose game didn't make the list, to share their game in the comments with a link to your IndieDB profile.

And a reminder that any indie game can receive votes as part of the Indie of the Year competition too! Not just the ones featured in this article.

Well, that of sharing links of the game I have it very much in mind. Although there have also been games that even without being even on the Featured game lists of IOTY's from previous years, they won (but it doesn't seem to be my case).

You're not the only one. They botched the headlined release for my early-access game.

And now for some shameless self-promo: if you want to have a look to a really nice game not in the list, here's RoboPhobik Indiedb.com (Steam demo available!)
