Very cool idea!

 

I'm honored that my game Sheep It Up is part of the nominees, and I'm eager to discover the final results :)

 

It's also very helpful to have all the entries in a single place so we can easily test them out before voting, thanks for doing it!

Thanks and congratulations drludos and thank you for making Sheep It Up!

 

We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to try out games they've never played before so they can make informed votes for their favourites!

 

Also, below I've attached a graphic for you and all the nominated games to use as you wish. :-)

Ok so this is 2600 only and only a list of "nominated" games. Should be called the VCS awards. I was interested cause it was called the atari awards. I did not recognise any of the games because I do not follow the thousands of vcs games andd hacks.

Then the nominations lists and awards are perfect for you, because they reduce the number of games you have to follow massively. ;)

Just like the Oscars, we first release the list of nominees in each of the categories. Unlike the Oscars YOU can have a say in which are your favourite games,  so head over to the voting area! :-) The actual awards show is on February 23, 2019 where the winners will be announced from the list of nominated games.

 

We will be expanding the event next year to include other platforms and it will be renamed the '2019 Homebrew Awards'. :-)

The physical awards have arrived for the 2018 Atari Awards! They're better looking than I ever thought possible and I can't wait to hand them out next month!!

Sweet!

 

Do you have a way to put the names on them as well?

I wanted to have the physical awards ready for the live show for presentation so to have them engraved with the winners names would have involved delaying the award show by a few weeks after the voting closed. Possibly next year? :-)

 

 

Sweet!

Maybe you could include a printed certificate? Something simple, but that would at least show who or what won. :)

Good idea, I'll look into how much that costs. :-)

What material is that? Maybe you could engrave the winner's name. Though there is little space left.

 

Revision has pretty similar awards. But also often without names. And not Atari shaped of course:

I think it's acrylic, It's seriously the best looking trophie I've ever seen, I was gonna suggest engraving the winner upside down and mirrored underneath, but there's actually quite alot of space left if you look closely, not expecting James to do that, but it could be done by the reciever, I like the abstract look myself.
