Visuality Award

Era of Empire


Era of Empire is a brand new massive multiplayer online simulation brought to you by PCL. The refined 3D in-game scenes including the rotatable main city makes this game stand out from the rest of its kind. Both the artwork and the play style will take you back in time to the Middle Ages. Era of Empire has the core gameplay of simulation games. Players have to build their own cities, manage resource production, train troops, form an alliance and attack the dragon castle to recover their lost territory. As a leader, the player must lead their troops to explore the surrounding areas and take as many resources as possible while simultaneously protecting the empire from the attacking evil forces. Random enemy monsters will attack your castle from time to time, and you must be ready to protect it. Players can also team up with more allies to become even stronger. Making new friends is the key to cooperation and a great way to become much stronger.

Innovation Award

Musicality Award

Find your focus in the space between the sounds, and return colour and harmony to a dark sonic soundscape. Ask yourself - what does a great puzzle sound like?

Best Upcoming

Feudal Feud


Build a city, crush your neighbours, and then... Try to convince them not to revolt against your legitimate rule.

Feudal Feud is a free diplomacy, conquest and strategy mobile game. It is a wargame lite played in real-time over a period of a few weeks. You share a map with 100 other players with whom you'll need to negotiate, ally and schemes to dominate the region.

Players you conquer become your vassals. But you'll have to convince them not to revolt if you wish to truly establish your hegemony. However, limited life expectancy means that keeping your strengths and waiting for the death of your own liege may sometime be a better course of action than openly revolting.
