Congratulations to everyone who made a game in the previous year. Here's hoping this year will be fruitful and full of great games! And remember to nominate!
Congratulations, OldPat!
Also, this will be an easy interview to make.
Congrats on winning so many nominations OldPat!
Beta testers!? No, this game needs a goddamn exorcist!
A gigantic HELL YEAH to all you winners, and some applause to all nominees.
Dark Souls of RMN...

Woohooo~ My first and probably the last misao ever :')
Damn, most of the categories weren't even close. This is also the first time in 9 years that we failed to reach 1000 votes.

That said, congrats to the winners! Very well deserved from all of you.

(EDIT: This originally had music in it, but I got in some hot water with the Oscars.
So I decided to upload it here as an mp4 file
- If I ever get a stable work place again,
I'll probably throw this in as a video file, along with other bonus content I plan to add to FFvD, as a thank you.)

Holy shit, I didn't think I'd actually win! Again, thank you, everyone! I know this was like,
a joke and also, one of the lowest turnout for the misaos this year. But again, it was a joke,
...but this award also means you guys, really liked that joke! XD... So this actually means
a lot to me! Especially with this terrible year I'd had... So I plan to do more with this,
whenever I get the opportunity again.

10 years ago, we couldn't add video to rpgmaker, we couldn't even publish our own
games commercially - But now thanks our community that's persisted for 10 years,
thanks to Cherry and Nessiah, now we can do both, now we can do so much more.

I really can't wait to see what the future holds for rpgmaker, for the communities that
precedes us, or the games that will follow this one. They'll make these games better and faster
than we ever did. They'll tell better jokes, faster than the ones I told with Final Fantasy vs. Dog, XD
and I truly think now more than ever, is the best time to be an rpgmaker.

Everyone, thank you. This really means a lot.♥

Special shoutout to:
OldPat for sweeping the Misao's this year with PSYCH Locke (very well deserved!)
KaseyOzymy's Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass
Darken's Kryopolis
Lydia and Rindre's Aria's Story
Momeka's Grimps: a Christmas Puzzle/Squeeking of the dead
visitorsfromdreams's Shooty and the Catfish (demo)
Sidewinder and that seasonal dungeon in Dirge of Doningoth
LolloRocketDiver's nec(H)roma
2018's IGMC winners, and the rest

These guys were the real winners of 2018, If you want to see what 2018 looked like,
please check out these games as well. 2018 was a very good year for rpgmaking.
Congrats to all the winners! I actually haven't got around to playing Psyche Locke yet, :V but it's probably a good reason play it next
OrudoPatto, kisama!


PSYCHE Locke won.
I seriously didn't expect this.

It makes me feel really proud about the game. Despite it being a short, modest experience made in a short time span, I'm glad it was deemed worthy of recognition.

I'm really stupidly happy, right now. xD

I know I can do more, and I will, so...

Thank you, everyone, for giving the game a chance^^
And congrats to all of the other winners and partecipants! You made some really good games!

And thank you, Liberty and staff, for the feature spot. ç_ç
