CRYENGINE Indie Game of the Year Award - Cast your Vote!

#1
Image
The year is coming to an end and as it is common practice to look back to remember what great games you played in the past 12 months, we, too want to award a prize to the best of them. Of course, our regards go to you, our CryENGINEERS, and so we're looking to honor the best CRYENGINE Indie Game. We have three awesome nominees – and prizes for the winners and those who vote! We had a hard time deciding because the amount of great projects you guys have been putting out this year is simply amazing. To keep it fair and square, we decided to only consider games that have been fully released this year - and didn't count early access games.

So without further ado - here are our three nominees for CRYENGINE Indie Game of the Year - 2017: Image An ancient world, long abandoned. Where has everyone gone? What lies beyond the valley?
Aporia: Beyond The Valley is a single-player first person mystery adventure set a lavishly detailed open world.
You awake abandoned after hundreds of years of sleep in a crumbling temple of a once mighty civilization. Outside, a ruined city lies deep in the grip of a jungle.
Immersed in this world of dark beauty, thrilling mystery and ancient structures, you embark on a quest to discover the truth about who you are, and what disaster befell this magnificent ancient world.

Aporia is ON SALE on Steam right now
- and we highly recommend to get the Soundtrack Edition as the music in this game is so enchanting and beautiful - it will keep on giving for a long time after you finished the game.

Explore a verdant landscape, vast temples and master ancient technology to reveal the macabre secrets of this haunted, forgotten world. With revolutionary story and puzzle mechanics, Aporia: Beyond The Valley reveals a dark and deadly past and sounds a warning to our possible future.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Image Deceit tests your instincts at trust and deception in a multiplayer first-person shooter. You wake up in an asylum to the sound of an unfamiliar voice, surrounded by five others. A third of your group have been infected with a virus, but who will escape? Whilst traversing the building the power will be going out creating darkness, allowing the infected players to transform into their terror form and strike. Find allies and complete objectives around the map to better your chances of survival.

The environment has been specifically setup to cause conflict amongst the group, creating doubt about the true intentions of players. The infected will be trying to cover up their group sabotage attempts, whilst the rest will be keeping an eye out for this suspicious behaviour and attempt to join forces with people they think they can trust.

Check out the DECEIT Winter Event on Steam - it's FREE to play!

Overall, the gameplay involves the frenzy of fast paced combat mixed with strategic map positioning, and of course the psychological aspects of determining who is infected.
_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Image Something strange appears in the woods. Rain pours, and darkness hangs in the air.
Life as you know it is about to change forever.

In this Lovecraftian horror adventure, you'll have to learn how to survive as you fend off a dark and disturbing evil. Explore a huge and terrifying world, flee from a unrelenting enemy, solve puzzles, and unravel the ancient mystery that's befallen this land.

Are you just trying to convince me that this huge "faithful community" only came up with 3 projects on this engine? Or it's you chose only 3 projects when there's quite a lot to highlight?

We did chose 3 games that released in 2017 that the team deems their favorites for various reasons. That doesn't mean we don't appreciate all the other games and projects released and in the making. But for a faithful voting-process that doesn't get confusing, a pre-selection had to be made.

If you feel like there's a project or projects that is/are worth to be highlighted more, just ping me and we'll evaluate it/them and see it done. There are several ways to be highlighted all year round that apply to games of all stages; not just released ones, and the rules for that are in our Showcase Gallery. Everyone with a CRYENGINE project can participate.
Too bad we don't have Wolcen Lords of mayhem
-> http://store.steampowered.com/app/42437 ... _of_Mayhem
IMHO Best looking H&S cRPG Game of 2017
Wolcen is one of our all-time favorites, but it's still in early access. Only fully released games were considered for this GotY voting. As soon as Wolcen is out, it's going to be in the selection most definitely.

Cheers,
