GOTY 2019 nominations now open
Liam Dawe commented on 21 January 2020 at 1:11 pm UTC

Hello again all, thanks for the feedback recently helping come up with categories for our GOTY award.

Nominations are now open: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/goty.php

Note: Since this is for supported Linux games, it counts if it released for Windows in 20xx but for Linux in 2019. Go by the Linux release date.

Doing it quietly here on the forum first, so that we don't get utterly swamped approving them.

Nominations will stay open for a while, then we close nominations and go over each category to ensure they're all in the right place and after that voting opens.

I wanted to nominate Baba Is You for "Most innovative gameplay for a 2019 release" but it said that no games match that find. But when I tried to submit it, it said that the game already exists in the database.

Thanks, it works now.

X4: Foundations was released in November 30, 2018 for Windows, but the Linux version was released in mid-2019. Does it count as 2019 then?

Yes, this is for Linux games.

It seems like the Favourite FOSS Project category is also limited to games found in the database?

Liam Dawe commented on 21 January 2020 at 4:25 pm UTC

Yes, it all is.

Proton not eligible for 'Favourite FOSS Project' then?

It's fine, it's still a FOSS project.

I guess I should be clearer: not being in our database doesn't mean it's not eligible - just needs someone to submit it to us or for us to manually add it.

Alright, I gave submitting Proton a shot.
