It’s that time of year again, where we roll out the red carpet and celebrate the best that 2020 has offered us. In a year that has otherwise been so terrible, the fact that we’ve had a steady stream of such excellent games to play has been nothing but a relief.
It really has been a great year for games, from the big blockbusters right down to the most humble of projects. We’ve had surprises that have come out of nowhere, and long-anticipated games that have managed to meet and exceed our expectations when we’ve finally got our hands on them.
This year, for the DDNet awards, we have 16 different categories to recognise, and as we always do. Today we have one of our newer categories. Over the last couple of years, game development has exploded across Asia, with Korea, China, Indonesia, Singapore and Taiwan, in particular, all growing very robust game development sectors. We’ve been impressed and amazed by the stories they’ve been telling – stories that tell us things of deep importance to this corner of the world, and so we felt it was worth creating an award to celebrate the excellent work that developers are doing across Asia.
Of course, we very much welcome your own picks for each category, so be sure to let us know your thoughts, and we’ll see you tomorrow for the next category!
