Adventure Game Studio is one of the most popular freeware tools for creating amateur adventure games, giving it one of the consistently largest selections of new games each year. The annual AGS Awards for games released in 2008 have recently been announced, with Ben Jordan 7 gaining four awards, A Second Face - The Eye of Geltz is watching us taking home Best Game and two other awards, while Erin Robinson's Nanobots took two of the awards that are informally known as "Rogers". Robinson also collected an award for Little Girl in Underland and Second Face author Le Woltaire collected Best Demo for the forthcoming game Dust to Water. Unusually, a non-adventure game, Colourwise, took four awards. Other winners included Once Upon a Crime, Quest for Glory II VGA: Trial By Fire, Limey Lizard: Waste Wizard and Beauties And Beasts.
The awards ceremony is available as an AGS game itself, where the characters from the game collect their awards, and a full list is available on the AGS blog.
