Voting is now open for our Linux GOTY Awards

Posted by , / 5232 views

After a little bit of a clean up, voting is now officially open for our 2017 Linux GOTY Awards so get a move on!

It was quite a bit of working cleaning this one up, as much as we tried to make the category names and descriptions as clear as possible, we had a lot of submissions for games that released years ago.

Still, it's a bit of fun to do this each year. Fun to see what people pick and fun to let developers known Linux gamers enjoy their games, which is the point.

If you do somehow pick the wrong item to vote on, don't worry as you can reset it.

Voting will close Friday 19th of January.

Does "Best Audio" mean "Best Soundtrack" or "Best Sound Engineering". Those are sort of apples and oranges in their way.

For best audio I voted for Owlboy. Though otherwise I would have voted for West of Loathing. It has a great soundtrack and came out on GOG for Linux in 2017.

I guess I'll abstain from voting since I've only played maybe 2 games that came out in 2017...

You could still vote on things like "Favourite FOSS project", "Favourite fully open source game" or "Most promising Early Access game". Those categories have games/software that were released before 2017, so it's more likely that you know more about them
I also voted only on 5 categories since I haven't played most of the games listed there and therefore can't really call any of them 'Best of 2017'.

That's the thing, West of Loathing and Pyre both have outstanding music in their own ways, but the sound design of The Long Dark is critical to establishing the atmosphere and succeeds to a huge degree. So how do you make that choice between effective environmental work and good music? Sure they're both audio, but otherwise they're entirely different concepts.

Easy votes done. Now the hard ones....

Should Hellpoint be on the "most anticipated for 2018" list when the release date is early 2019?

Favorite FOSS project is a tough one to vote on! That's the kind of problem I like to have.
