Indie projects, being a tiny FRACTION of the entire voting scheme, were practically pushed aside.
Not just for MOTY either. General views and watchers showed poor results.
Thus, the Indie Devs were formed. We are a dedicated group reviewing, interviewing, and publishing great indie games to see and play.
If you have any confusion on what indie/standalone games are: They are projects that do not require another game to run. Simply download and run, works right off the bat!
We hope the community of Moddb sheds more light on the indie side of things for Phase 2 of MOTY.
Wonder whose competing? No problem! We got them listed:
A total conversion which aims to turn the FPS C&C Renegade into Tiberian Sun with a bit of Firestorm thrown in.
Mount&Blade is a 3D, open-ended, single-player, third- or first-person, computer role-playing game, which has a medieval setting, without any fantasy elements. Created and distributed by the Turkish development house TaleWorlds.
Remember 1996's Command & Conquer: Red Alert? Now, enter the fray as a single combatant on the battlefield, fighting alongside the Allies or the Soviets for global supremacy in this mod that adheres to the classic world created by Westwood Studios.
Infinity: The quest for Earth
Make a name for yourself in one of the largest, most open-ended space sims ever made. Infinity utilizes procedural techniques to generate hundreds of thousands of seamless worlds, all ripe for privateers to pillage, explore, trade and battle over!
Jurassic Park is a title for the PC based on the novel and the film of the same name. A modern 3D adventure set in 1993 players will play the role of Dr. Alan Grant which follows a hybrid story based on the original media.
Lux, set in a steam punk universe. As an unknown force is consuming all light sources throughout this universe. Light has become a commodity, and light-hunters scour the galaxies to collect what little light they can find, for both trade and survival.

Red Alert 2: Apocalypse Rising
