Last year was a great year for games. While 2012 looks to be even better, Digitally Downloaded has taken a look back with a special awards issue magazine.
We have endeavoured to recognise the most innovative and interesting games across all download platforms with this issue. The nice thing about digital downloads is that they allow small releases by tiny teams of developers to stand side-by-side with the big productions, and we have always tried to give both sizes of production equal air time. There are some results we hope you will find surprising in there, as we hope you'll find a new game to play and love after reading this.
