GameMaker Awards 2021 | Vote NOW!


The GameMaker Awards 2021 saw over 200 entries! We were truly blown away by the quality of all the submissions for both Best Game and Most Anticipated! Our judges worked hard and struggled to cut it down to just 5 finalists for each category. Once again due to the incredible volume of high-quality entries, we will be putting together multiple "Runners up" blog to highlight the other games after the voting has concluded. Voting is NOW open and will run from today through to June 29th.  We hope you will be sharing support for your favourite game on social media using #GMAwards.
