For immediate release


Melbourne - December 30, 2011– At the beginning of this month, we commenced our search for the best of 2011 by inviting gamers and developers to vote for their favorite indie games and mods on IndieDB and ModDB.

170,000 fans voted and now just before we enter 2012, it is time to celebrate the winners in 2011. Scott Reismanis, the Founder of ModDB and IndieDB, commented "For the first time in a long time, it was hard to argue with the 2011 winners, with even the staunchest critics agreeing every game featured deserved its place."

2011 Mod of the Year is Multi Theft Auto
    <*>Runner Ups: <*>Third Age– Total War <*>No More Room in Hell <*>CoH: Eastern Front
