Let’s help pick the 2016 IGF Audience Award winner

Last year’s went to This War of Mine

Audience voting has begun for the 2016 Independent Games Festival Awards (vote here) and the 2016 Game Developers Choice Awards (and here).

If you’d like to have a say in who claims the Audience Awards at next month’s ceremonies, you just need to provide a valid email address when submitting your votes. “Email addresses will not be distributed, and we will delete your information after the poll has closed,” they promise.

Considering Undertale came out on top in GameFAQ’s recent “Best.Game.Ever” user poll, I would expect it to win at the IGF as well, but don’t let that stop you from being true to your heart.

You have until next Friday, February 19 at 11:59pm Pacific to cast your ballot. The awards ceremonies will be streamed via Twitch on March 16, 2016 at 6:30pm Pacific.

I feel like someone is going to want to see all of the nominees listed right here, for whatever reason, and who am I to judge? Here you go, you link-averse reader you:
