Finally, in addition to all these accolades, Pharmacy won the Audience Choice Award this year. This is open to every nominated game tonight, meaning it beat all of the other 33 finalists. Quite an achievement!

I’m also pleased to see a few winners here that we haven’t had a chance to write about in RPS, such as Slider, The Forest Quartet, and RPG Time: Legend Of Wright. Admittedly, Slider isn’t quite out yet, but you can bet it’ll be straight to my Steam wish list later tonight. Meanwhile, the Forest Quartet cried out right at the end of December last year, and I really had an eye on RPG Time for years and then was never quite able to revisit it (though I certainly still play the stakes, I swear). In any case, I’ll be scouring the GDC show floor to try them out this weekend, so keep an eye out for more thoughts on them then.
