Melbourne – November 30, 2012 – 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.
After amassing a staggering 61,000 votes in 2011 which resulted in Terraria being crowned the eventual winner (Minecraft won in 2010), voting booths have been added to all game profiles on IndieDB. It is now up to the players to click the “vote” button and help us crown 2012′s best.
Scott Reismanis, the Founder of IndieDB, commented “this is always our favorite time of the year, watching the nominations pour in, with the leaders usually only separated by a handful of votes. We cannot wait to unveil the Top 100 in 12 days and of course the No. 1 at the end of December. With some many games deserving of attention and accolades – we expect the outcome in 2012 to be interesting.”
Until January 1st join us in celebrating all that is great about our beloved independent developers by participating and voting to decide the top 100, and the overall ultimate winner.
