The Japanese indie game festival BitSummit has wrapped up, and in doing so named the winners of its annual awards program.
Six of the winners were selected by a panel of industry judges while one was left to a public vote. This year, the winner of the top honors, the Vermilion Gate Award, was Deskworks’ RPG Time: The Legend of Wright.
Developed by a two-person team, RPG Time won out over fellow nominees Unpacking (Witch Beam), World of Horror (panstasz/Ysbryd Games), 39 Days to Mars (It’s Anecdotal), and Below (Capy Games). Obakeidoro by Freestyle Games walked away with this year’s audience-selected Popular Selection Award as well.
