The Aggie Awards - The Best Adventure Games of 2017 page 18

Final Notes


To be eligible, a game must have been launched through digital distribution, self-published online, or commercially released for the first time in either North America or the United Kingdom in the calendar year 2017.

Any series designed to be episodic in nature that was completed in 2017 is eligible, even if the series was begun earlier. Conversely, any series that was begun in 2017 but not yet completed is ineligible. Exceptions include The Adventures of Bertram Fiddle, The Dream Machine and The Journey Down, whose previous individual episodes were deemed eligible when each series debuted and have been grandfathered in under the original system.

Ports and remakes of commercial games are disqualified from contention, though updated re-releases of former freeware games are eligible.

To ensure total impartiality, no one involved in voting was permitted to nominate any game with which they were involved outside of official Adventure Gamers press coverage.

Must have missed a lot since I found Thimbleweed Park so boring I quit playing early.

On par with some of the best from Lucasfilm.

It’s always a pleasure to read your detailed comments about the award winners and this year wasn’t an exception. Thank you Adventure Gamers!

I’m especially glad to see Thimbleweed Park, The Sexy Brutale and Gorogoa received the praises they deserved and looking forward to see what does 2018 have in store for us.

Hmm 2018 it will be interesting to see what great adventure games will be released certain companies I automatically know the game will be awesome like Wadjet Eye games the creators of the Blackwell series of games. If the company that makes the Book of Unwritten Tales decides to create a part 3 that will be on my wishlist on both Steam and GOG. I heard there was a remake of Waxworks on the way not sure how I feel about it but the screenshots looked cool. Anyway enough rambling from me enjoyed the Aggies and hope to see them again next year
