IndieDb’s Players’ Choice Indie Of The Year Announced

Similar to its sister competition, ModDb’s Mod of The Year, IndieDb’s Indie of The Year is the largest celebration of hobbyist, amateur and pro indie game makers on the planet. Prior to 2010, Indies were awarded their due in the same contest as mods, but 2010 was a massive year for new Indies, which is why (as we reported back in November), the decision was made to grant Indie Developers a separate contest. As with ModDb’s MOTY, the Indie of The Year contest came with some changes from previous years: The separation of Mods and Indies into two contests; and the brand new Press Panel alongside Player’s Choice, and the replacement of the Editor’s Choice panel with ‘Panel’s Choice.

Voting ended on December 14, and since then the results have been pored over with a fine toothed cob, and other mixed metaphors. On Christmas eve, ModDb and IndieDb gave the world an early Christmas Present with the announcement of the Player’s Choice Mod of the Year, and Indie of the Year.

Without further ado, here’s a run-down of the winners:

The title “The Ball” is actually really fun game, I found myself playing the demo till the end. This game is a great puzzle/FPS game. I wish I could see more stuff like that in the future using creative ways to build puzzles and to use wacky ideas to get players to think on how to be creative on solving a problem.
