Of all the polls we’ve had so far, I’m really proud to say that the Australian game of the year received the most attention and the most votes. It was also one of the most competitive, which I think says a lot about where the Australian games industry is at right now.
I’d argue that, in terms of quality, this might be the best year of Australian games ever.
Hacknet, Expand, Armello, Hand of Fate, Assault Android Cactus, Shooty Skies, Pac-Man 256, Satellite Reign, Land Sliders, Ninja Pizza Girl. That’s just some of the great work being produced in Australia right now.
In any other year most of these games would be in with a strong chance of taking out Australian game of the year, but in 2015 there can only be one! It was pretty close, but in the end there was a clear winner.
Congratulations to League of Geeks — Armello is Kotaku Australia’s Australian game of the year.
Hand of Fate
The team at Defiant Development in Brisbane takes out second place. Congrats to everyone who worked on the game!
Well over a thousand people voted on this poll, but there was only eight votes between second and third place. Congrats to Matt Trobbiani!
Thanks to everyone who voted!
