2017 Indie of the Year search has begun


Today marks day one of the 8th Annual Indie of the Year Awards. A celebration of the years finest independent games picked by the gaming community.


December 1st, 2017 - The 8th Annual Indie of the Year Awards have officially kicked off. A voting booth has been added to all indie profiles on IndieDB, and for the next four weeks player votes will determine the top 100 (announced December 11) and the overall winner announced shortly after Christmas.

Last year the community voted 94,489 times, and we saw plenty of hard work pay off for RimWorld who won the players choice after exploding in popularity on Steam. It wasn't alone with SUPERHOT smashing its way into second place and Stardew Valley taking out third. They are joined by previous winners including Minecraft and Chivalry.

From now until the close of 2017, join us in celebrating the phenomenal work indie developers do, in pursuit of creating something remarkable for us gamers to enjoy. For more information on the event including a live scoreboard and how to vote head over to the official awards page.
