Judging session of 12th IMGA: 48 hours. 15 jury members. +1000 games submitted. 600 pre-selected and 150 unpublished titles.
The first day of our judging started in Marseille without sun but with passion and fun! Our jury was split between 5 different groups of 3-4 people (journalists, developers and industry experts). Each group reviewed and played more than 100 games. Special thanks to all of our jury members for their amazing work today!
For each game, the group debates and decides whether it should be in or out for the second day of judging. After 10 hours of “intense playing”, we pre-selected 150 games to be played more tomorrow. Discussions also started about the names of the main categories, next to the Grand Prix, the People’s Choice Award and the Jury’s Honorable Mention.
VR games, final votes and other exciting announcements to come tomorrow. Stay tuned!
