Every year, ModDB strives to recognize the best games and mods that make use of our services through the Mod of the Year Awards. While MOTY 2008 was the most successful event thus far, it still presented the same problem as previous years. Voting for the Player's Choice Awards largely consisted of mods and games that did most of their chest-thumping in the few months leading up to them. How could the short attention spans of voters be harnessed to have them consider the full breadth of releases in a year?
Our solution - the "Summer of Mods and Indies"! This event will focus on rounding up all the major releases since the MOTY's in order to boost exposure for all those great mods and indie games you missed. It comes at a great time of the year too, when most gamers suffer from a drought of high-street commercial releases. All of this is made possible with help from our returning sponsor, the U.S. Air Force:
So sit back, relax and discover new gaming experiences that you never knew existed. The "Summer of Mods and Indies" event kicks off July 15!
The Summer of Mods & Indies event provides much needed exposure to mods and indie games in order to help them connect with their potential audiences. If you'd like to participate in this year's event, please contact stenchy by July 15th. Your mod must have been released or received a major update within the last 6 months in order to qualify.
