As another year comes to an end, it is time once again to begin our search for the Players’ Choice Independent Game of the Year. In 2013 Desura joins as the major sponsor, offering $15,000 in digital distribution prize money to the winning games.
After amassing a record 78,000 votes in 2012 which resulted in Chivalry: Medieval Warfare being crowned the eventual winner (Minecraft won in 2010, Terraria in 2011), voting booths have been added to all game profiles on IndieDB. With amazing indies such as Risk of Rain, The Stanley Parable, Rogue Legacy and so many more all releasing in 2013, it is now up to the players to click the “vote” button and help us crown 2013’s best.
Scott Reismanis, the Founder of IndieDB, commented: “Indie DB has grown massively this year, as indies continue their meteoric rise propelled by Sony, Microsoft and all publishers looking to score the next indie darling. Nominations have already started to pour in, and it is exciting to see the games jostling for a spot in the top 100 which will be announced on the 11th of December.”
Until January 1st join us in celebrating all that is great about our beloved independent game developers by participating and voting to decide the top 100, and the overall ultimate winner.
