The Misaos are an annual award event given to indie games made in the RM community. 'Misaos' is the general name for the awards such as 'Best Atmosphere', 'Most Technical Prowess' or 'Game of the Year'. You can liken it to a "People's Choice" award, as the games are nominated and voted upon by the community-at-large.



The current categories


Best Graphics & Artwork
The game you feel has the best graphics. (In general, this category should favor original artwork over ripped or commercial graphics)

Best Sound & Music
The best soundtrack and creative use of sound.

Trippiest Game
The game that was most strange, bizarre, psychedelic, offbeat, and quirky released this year.

I've already for some for 2016, and yay, Misaos are the best.

Granted, they only cover the first four months of the year, but they're a good refresh for what came in from January to April.

My Misao prediction: G doesn't even get nominated and some blowhard wins every category, even the ones they don't apply for.

Quest for the Peace Sword seems like a pretty nifty game. It's the only one in Liberty's linked threads that got a purple title, so it HAS to be something special, right?

Anyway, wow my nomination list is completely empty. This must change.

Lobster Quest will win every category.
I think Imaginary Friends and Trick & Treat are the 2 games worth noting.

I would have also nominated Ara Fell, but too bad it's commercial...

Thanks for moving this to the right forum. I'm having all sorts of issues making new threads outside the welp forum.

I will add all suggested games.
I couldn't find Lobster Quest though.

Maybe your G and my Erayu will share the Sleeper Hit of the Year award then xD

And there I realize... I haven't played a single rpg maker game this year. D:
Feels like the year has just started :,)

Man, I have not played RMN games at all this year!

That's because it never had a proper gamepage. It was part of this event.

*Edit:If you count that event, I guess that means I've made... three games this year?
I gots me some work to do.

And about the predictions, Pocket Mirror has been killing it this (later half of the)year, so it might be the winner.

Pocket Mirror may win big, but there are a lot of smaller categories it doesn't apply in. You don't need to just recommend the big winners. The other categories need nominations too.
Expecting a massive Pocket Mirror sweep, but I'd love to see Everlong get some love for its accomplishments.

I haven't played Pocket Mirror so I'm not sure what categories it will sweep, but there are still some it may not get:

Most RTP
Lawsuit Waiting to Happen
Best Fan-Game
Best Old-School Game
Sleeper Hit of the Year
Most Promising Demo

Edit: I like the years when multiple games can win in different categories. But we could have another Star Stealing Prince here.

I mean I can make a little graphic of it if you really want to take my terrible posts seriously :V
Here's hoping my game wins "Lawsuit Waiting to Happen". LOL!
*Edit I know I'm voting for Everlong in a few categories.

Be Kory. Create a list of "games that are notable". Proceed to include a game with ~70 downloads and no reviews.

This post seems incredibly and unnecessarily antagonistic, for Kory and for me. A proper response would be "*blank* is a game I feel should be added to the list for these reasons".

Potshot... for Kory and for me

Honestly, it could be my own game and I would still think it's stupid that it's on the list, so my post was not a potshot at you.

This post seems incredibly and unnecessarily antagonistic

Hi, I'm Sated. Nice to meet you.

This thread reminds me that I need to finish Three Ghostly Roses sooner than later.

Also, I predict a future of much awards for Soma Spirits.
