Congrats to the Winners ❤.


EDIT: Wicked 3 way tie this year for Best Event Game.
Has that ever happened before?

EDIT1: Year end honorable mentions that didn't make it for one reason or the other:

It's not easy to release an old game so please check out Crash Head
A definite highlight of the Boulevard of Broken 2k3 Dreams Event and a 2023 nominee.


A really cool game came out, called "Pinball Ryan(?)" from this years VIP2023 summer camp, where these guys made, a pinball machine, Wolfenstein 3D and a SEGA arcade afterburner clone and a tamagotchi, all in rpgmaker2003 (think? I'll have to double check)5 or 6 guys worked on this together, it's all done in steam rpgmaker2003. 1 one of them had multiple duties to tie all the different games together - that's all i can make out from japanese twitter.

Bad Apple is really cool proof of concept. It's harder to make out cause the tiles are bigger. I remember seeing this during 2023 but forgot to make a note of it and nominate it. 2023 was kind of a bad year. So a lot of stuff slipped under the radar. I'll see if I can mention it somewhere, so i'm mentioning here as a year end highlight for posterity.



...It's really difficult to get stuff nominated for the misaos. So be sure to checkout both the nominees as well as the winners.
Thank you very much to all who voted and congrats to other winners and nominees!
Punniest Game award yayy!! I contributed to the title and writing so I'm happy that's the Misao award we got for that game. Thank you and I'm also grateful for the other ones we got nominated for. Congrats to everyone as well!

Congrats to the winners! Ya'll done good!

...here's what could be called the short version. If I also included what categories games were nominated for, as Liberty's post does, The Lonely League really was everywhere in 2023.

Congratulation to the winners, to the nominees, but most importantly, a thank you to the people who participated in the voting/nomination process!
Congrats! These were all great games in my opinion! :D

You were probably one of the very few people who voted having played more than one game in each category! XD

Would another monthly data thread for this year be welcome? There's already a decent array of games to consider from the New and Notable section alone. There's already a New and Notable for this month! I kinda feel like if I'm doing this again, I should get the thread up before more show up. At least before the end of this month.
HUH!?! WHAT THE HOLY SHIT!! Thank you for the nominations and the award!! It's an honorrr! I definitely need to check out the other nominations and winners one day! Agh! Thanks again!

I did not vote and played most of them.
Whoa! I checked the results out of curiosity and audibly gasped when I saw Goodbye Tired Stars and The Stairway among the nominees!! I wasn't expecting it!
I only decided to finally enter RMN last year, but I've always liked to check the Misaos results to see what cool new games there were. Seeing two of my games here now makes me want to go run to tell my younger self about it. Thank you so, so much!!

Many congrats to the winners and the other nominees, too!! I'm looking forward to checking them out! :'D
Awesome! Thanks for the nomination and congrats to the winners! :D
