Quasar

A short adventure game on a spaceship, loosely inspired by the TV series Firefly, it focuses on mupltiple playable characters, how they interact, and how they each react differently to hotspots - from snarky medic Julie to stoic mercenary Karst, and from loyal technician Florent to sesquipedalian researcher Callisto.

It has excellent high-resolution artwork, detailed portraits, and a separate soundtrack for each character.

Suggested for
  • Best Short Game
  • Best Dialogue
  • Best Background Art
  • Best Character Art
  • Best Player Character (four of them, take your pick :) )



Details and download here.

for your consideration : Venator


The Von Penumbrus family are the Venators (the Latin term for hunter). They hunted supernatural creatures for generations.

Tonight, Gilbert, the youngest member of the family, lazy, timid and not particularly bright, is sent against his will to his first hunt : to put to rest once and for all a ghost scaring people in the nearby cemetery.

Featuring :
A magic medallion that can help the player stuck by offering another puzzle
A raven, possibly the least encouraging companion worlwide
A ghost who is terrible at telling jokes
...



I would like to nominate my game for :

Best short game
Best Player Character
Best Non Player Character
Best Character Art
Best Puzzles
Best Animation


Download
AGS data base game page

Thank you for your consideration.

Now that the 'shared universe' category didn't make it  ;), you may want to consider my RON game Night and Day for the music nominations.              



A mysterious advertisement in The Realiser fails to shock the citizens of RON.
Is Elandra Desmond the only one that sees the danger facing Reality-on-the-Norm, or do the townspeople have their own agenda? And how does the disappearance of Davy and Mika connect to it?

Download Night and Day from the AGS database page here
And download the sound track (10 tunes) in mp3 format here


Thanks for looking/listening.

May I suggest Arden's Vale for your nomination consideration?


You play Riel, who, to save her sister from a deadly enchantment, must steal a magical stone with healing powers from a vengeful enchanter. After infiltrating the enchanter's castle, you must survive sinister traps, talking gargoyles, quite nearly logical puzzles, terrible puns, and finally the enchanter himself. But beware, for not everything is as it seems...

This game has already won the Game With the Most Random References to ATOTK Award, the 2011 Inventory to Hotspot Interaction Overkill Award, and the Most Family-Friendly Evil Bad Guy in a Game Released in August Award.

Additionally, I like to think it would be a fitting nomination for the AGS Awards under:

Best Puzzles
Best Short Game
Best Player Character
Best Animation
Best Music

Game Details
Download

Thank you for playing, considering, or at least considering playing.
Playing Arden's Vale has been shown to improve morale, revive unconscious kittens, and reverse hair loss.

Didn't there use to be an award for best tool/module/plugin or something like that, too? Because the underlying IRC plugin would totally be a shoo-in for that.

Hmmmm... not sure if I'm a little too late on this one, but thought I'd throw in my own FYC 8) (and seeing all those games together... quite an impressive year indeed!)

Krams Design presents...


EgressFeatures include:
- Cinematic hand drawn, frame-by-frame 2D animation, including short intro and ending sequences
- Multiple endings designed to reflect the actions of the player

Screenshots:

To download, follow the link from my Egress game page.

Please note that you can skip just about every cutscene and transition by pressing the 'ESC' key. Failing to have mentioned this in the how to play section was a great boo-boo on my part. Sorry for everyone who has endured frustration over this!

Ask if you want me to compose your game.

One thing that I would like to see happen with films is for music not to be treated as just one more ingredient, but as an integral and fundamental part, due to its fatal capacity to affect the mood of the movie.

Is that by design or by mistake? I thought the nominations thread said they'd run to the end of the month?

Yep, the early end of nominations caught me by surprise too. Didn't manage to nominate any games yet, as I planned to play through a few more candidates first. :(

Mistake (due to asynchronous communication between me and the Man). The noms will close... well, from when CJ set up the forum wide announcement again + 7 days.

Also; Mark, this should remain stickied, it is the other one (the awards 2011 thread) which should be unstickied! ;)

Nooooooo!!!! My demogame was deleted from megaupload.com
because the webpage was shutted down but I uploaded my gamedemo there.

I was jus checking if my gamedemo was still there.  But no. All was gone. Arrrrrg!

Just another of my own unluck. Why is my own unluck still following me when I try to release my gamedemo?

Oh Why oh whyyyyyy?  

Oh sorry just forget my entry then, since my demo are no longer available on the internet.

Oh well I can only just now wish you all a good luck in the nomination.  

ps.

Since there is no demo there to be found anymore because Megaupload.com was banned you moderator or webpage master have my license to delete this entry. But I can't do it.  So can you do it for me.

Or, you know, upload it somewhere else...

Any other games that should be especially considerated? I still have a couple of days to play a few more before handing in my noms, and I'm open to suggestions.
