I'm digging the art style. I think it compliments Moddb perfectly.

Great to see it back again :D. Love the new art-style. Last year i had so much fun promoting my game was so much great competition. Let's hope this year is just as good if not better.

What a great surprise this is, I completely forgot about MOTY. Echoing what already been said the art-style is great and very well suited to ModDB

You and me both...I don't know how I managed to forget about MotY, but somehow I did.

"Time, Dr. Freeman? Is it really that time again? It seems as if you only just arrived. You've done a great deal in a small time span. You've done so well, in fact, that I've received some interesting offers for your services."


Yes G-Man, it's time again, for the one most awesome time ever.
And people have done a great job in a small time span.

The art style reminds me of The Protomen's cover style for Act I. But it's red, not blue.

You can vote for both, you can vote as many times as you desire, the top 100 will be visible in phase 2.

I've counted 9k out of 45k votes by now (ye, i was late to start), that's 1/5 of all the votes. And well, complete leaders are:

Third Age - Total War
Garrys Mod
Forgotten Hope 2
White Night
Cry of Fear
CryZone: Sector 23
Company of Heroes: Eastern Front
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Lost Alpha
Republic at War
Multi Theft Auto

Those already got enough to get into top 100, even if they wont recieve any more votes.
I can quite accurately predict who's getting into phase 2, so feel free to ask.

Moddb may want to re-think when and how long MOTY occurs next year. Many of the modders are in college currently in finals and missed out on promoting their mods this week.
