I think Coldside should win the CryEngine game of the year 2020. Because it's developed by only one man and we don't have a lot of horror games developed using CryEngine. Coldside will be a game changer. Huge fan of CryEngine and also a student.

Re: Choose your CRYENGINE Indie Game of the Year 2020 !

I think it should be Wolcen : Lords of Mayhem. :) Just because for me it feels like it is the most sophisticated and it is the type of game i like most of the contestants!

... oh i did not receive a viking name on stream, that makes me sad ... ;)
