The OG will now put our heads together and vote on which of the games we think will win each award… The awards are given out in Berlin on July 6 – so we have a couple of months to talk about it!
Also, congratulations to OG writer Ted Alspach on getting a recommendation for SdJ!
Heh, it just occurred to me that Simsala…Bumm? or Abraca… wha? could be re-themed as Evil Dead: Klaatu Barada…Necktie?
Chris called The Game as a nominee!
