Have you placed your votes for the 2014 SXSW Gaming Awards? Yes, there is still time, and the SXSW Gaming Awards needs your input! Check the list of categories and finalists here. Then, please visit our online public ballot, and get your votes in. The public ballot runs until 11:59 pm CST on February 21, 2014.
Please note that the last category — the SXSW Gamer’s Voice Award — can only be voted upon by attending the SXSW Gaming Expo on Friday, March 7 and Saturday, March 8. You can play 26 awesome independent games, at the Indie Corner in the SXSW Gaming Expo, and vote for your favorite. In addition to your input, votes from our industry judges determines the final winner in each category.
It is also our great pleasure to reveal the entertainment for the 2014 SXSW Gaming Awards. In addition to recently-announced hosts, iJustine and SMOSH, this year's show features brand new videos from Rooster Teeth, Wren the Reaper, Adam de la Pena of Unpossible Productions, and very special video from you guessed it, SMOSH!
Finally, we are extremely happy to welcome a new and never before seen performance by Cirque du Soleil! With all this big news, how could you even dream of missing the amazing evening we have planned? It's all FREE and open to the public — although SXSW Gold, Interactive, and Platinum badge holders will receive priority seating.
We look forward to tallying all of your votes, and learning which games you thought were the best of 2013. You have to be here to see who wins. See you in March at the SXSW Gaming Expo, and the SXSW Gaming Awards!
