We have just announced 102 nominees for our 12th edition!
The jury was impressed by the quality and diversity of entries this year. Daniel Gray, 2016 jury member and Grand Prix Winner (Monument Valley
) of the 11th IMGA, commented, “We had everything from arcade-experience games to big titles with very polished design. The breadth of the entire spectrum from front to back was amazing!
Two months after announcing the new VR category, the IMGA jury has unveiled 10 virtual reality games as the nominees. According to Maarten Noyons, the IMGA’s founder, “the new category for VR games was a big success. We had a lot more entries than anticipated. The games were built using different devices and controllers and explored different genres such as arcade, shooters and racing games. It illustrated once again the creativity and endless possibilities in mobile gaming”.
“Overall, we saw several new trends emerging throughout this year’s submissions including the emergence of kids games, educational games and e-sport games,”
added Noyons. “We look forward to continuing to explore these and the other games to divulge the year’s winners in March.”
