The Best Indie Debut is a new category for The Game Awards this year which recognizes games making a huge splash during their first year of launch. The category will serve to highlight runaway blockbusters from the indie scene which hit the ground running.
Cuphead is good. Everyone should play it. It’s on PC too so you have no excuse, and definitely pay for it don’t steal it. Those developers deserve that money. They worked their asses off. Fuck the Oscars.
Cuphead is the Best Debut Indie Game of the Year 2017.
Cuphead also win the award for Best Art Direction which I would agree with whole-heartily as it depicts the classic cartoon animations of the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and even 60’s with likeness to something out of a Mickey Mouse legendary series in video game form. It definitely deserves an award and any recognition that it gets, and more.
51 different outlets and influencers judged half of the vote for this award with the other 50% of the vote going to gamers and website visitors who participated in The Game Awards live interactive.
