Fangame Awards Nominations Open

We've had a bunch of fantastic fangames come out this year, and as such, we're happy to announce the Fangame Awards 2022 nomination process is now open! The show now consists of 18 unique categories, plus 4 Community Awards, made of all the genres we know and love from these games. Just like last time, you may submit your TOP 3 nominees you think best fit each category. Of course, submitting just one nominee is also fine but we ask to avoid leaving blank answers if possible. If you wish to provide multiple nominees for a category, please separate each nominee with only a comma and use their full titles (e.g. I Wanna be the Dreamroamer,I Wanna Burnmind,I Wanna Arcana of the Tarot). Keep in mind, the ordering for your nominations will matter and be graded respectively as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for a certain category.

You can find the nomination form here: If you're unable to view it, Ghost made another form in English and Chinese at this link:

Nominations will be open for the next week, and will officially close on January 9th at 11:59 pm EST.
