Templario : there was lots of original games in 2014 : Tales Of Gorluth, Renegade Deluxe 2014, Smurf Rescue, Ace Of Hearts, Amazing Voxel Bird Saga, Centron 3D, Did IT Came From The Desert, Donkey Downfall, Flappy Bird, Love Dungeon, Marco Gregorio's Adventures to Unusual Places, SpiderCave, SuperTed, Who Becomes Amiga Guru?, Ask Me Up XXL 2, ...

Why game ports often wins Amiga Games Award ? Simply because create an original game takes time/money/energy. And when a coder ports something, it's often good stuff (no time waste with lame software).

For a very simple reason: from a technical POV there's no chance for individual/little projects to compete with games written by a whole team of paid coders, graphicians, musicians and marketing gurus. Given that I generally don't follow so much these 'awards', I hereby suggest to split the contest into categories. "Ports from mainstream releases" and "Amiga indie scene" might be two.

I'll second that motion. While I do like the ports of old high-budget games that we're getting, it's important to recognise few the Amiga indie releases that we get.

At least Cherry Darling's games made it to spot #3 for the 3 NG platforms.
