It's that time of year! The time where we get to make our voices heard and crown our favourite titles as Kings/Queens of their respective genres.

The current list of games due to have formal reviews by December 23rd are:

Severed [22nd December]
Saga of the North Wind [20th December]
Drakenlords [17th December]
Lost Frontier [15th December]

This list will be updated daily as I book stuff in, so stay tuned.

UPDATE: We have added the 'Storybook/Interactive Fiction' Category. For those of you who have already voted, you're free to send in additional votes for this category. Apologies for the change.

Ah, I love this time of year. And I appreciate that we'll have a vote in every category--that's a very cool change.

Quick question: why e-mail voting as opposed to forum posts? I'm guessing it's easier to tally votes via e-mail, but I appreciate the opportunity to discuss everyone's opinions, so perhaps we can get some forum discussion going too, either in this thread or a separate one (whatever makes sense).

I can certainly create a separate thread for GOTY discussions :)

I'll be honest - this is my first year running the GOTY awards so I guess I just wanted to give myself some room to breath. Being able to process the votes etc... in private will help with that and I was worried what might happen if the voting was out in the open. The thread could become confused if people posted multiple times or if spams got in. I'll be evaluating everything for next year's awards.

Also, I have a separate GOTY folder for all emails which makes storing the information handy :)

It has been a really lean year. I have purchased very few from that list.

mikamobile's Lost Frontier isn't on the list - le sigh

I am currently only playing one of the games on the list (owning several, but mighty ol' backlog looms just ahead...) so this is a bit tough for me...

Lost Frontier! Dadgumit, I knew there was something important tickling at the back of my brain!

I can't promise we'll get a review of Lost Frontier in, but I'll see what I can do, Prinny!

Perchang
Fallen london
The game
Planar conquest

Super Tribes has been renamed "The Battle of Polytopia" because of legal threats,

It's also now out on Android.

(And it should win a prize for being my favourite game since Rymdkapsel.)

I think GotY is Dungeon Warfare(originally released in 2015 on Steam), but
you guys don't have a review for it...
