I'm not sure what the AGS community stands to gain from its running joke of claiming to be the American Girl Scouts, but persist with it they do. It's bound to lead to some sort of hilarious mix-up that sees an epidemic of American teenage girls making point and click adventures, while a lot of people spend time in prison. It is in fact the Adventure Game Studio. (Which itself has the URL "bigbluecup"...) Anyhow, their annual awards are up and running, with the second round of voting taking place over the next few weeks. Each category has been narrowed down to five finalists, with Calin Leafshade's Eternally Us, and Ascovel and Baron's Snakes Of Avalon receiving a lot of nominations. If you want to vote, you need to wait about three days we're told. Then a voting page will appear. Which gives you plenty of time to have a play of the finalists.
I'll be taking a look at a few of the nominees this week, and will let you know my thoughts.
