These are all awful games which nobody played back in the day. There’s nothing there I’d vote for and many I would vote for are not listed.
Umm, you did read the article right, or at least the heading?? This poll are for games released in 2019, doesn’t sound like this poll is for you though.
I think Joe is being a troll. His comment bears no merit to what the award is about.
The point of this award is to recognise NEW games for the Amiga currently in development/recently released; it’s not a vote about old games.
In what day were you thinking Joe? if you’re thinking on a Sunday about 6 months ago you may be correct but you if you’re thinking about 25 to 30 years ago I am sorry to say you’re ever so sliiiiightly of the mark.

“These are all awful games”…says Joe lighting the touch-paper and running away.
Assist your species by shoving off.
I loved playing both Rygar & ReshootR .
I can’t believe one of those games is one from Irongate, made with the obsolete Backbone, with such a horrible movement and sprites.
Besides, that guy does not deserve such merit, since when one of his games does not come out winner in a contest he begins to say all the other games are bullshit and it’s his the game which should have won.
He is a developer banned on almost every page for his continuous arguings with everyone, besides discrediting the work of people who have collaborated on his projects.
He does NOT deserve to be on that list.
I am perfectly fine with allowing people to voice their opinion on this topic. I am aware of this particular developers behaviour and treatment towards others but the purpose of this poll is to raise awareness of the current gaming scene while having a little bit of fun and as such I do not want it to be political in any way. While I have committed to the 2019 Awards having 20 nominees, considering that there were only about 23 to 25 games released that I am aware of, the Irongate titles sneak in on merit of the game alone and I must not allow personal character traits to influence. I hope you appreciate this position.
i agree – keep out the politics and base games on merit
Yo no he pedido estar en esta lista. Mi juego es el único que se ha puesto en un amiga no acelerado para parecer muy lento. Prefiero no estar en esta lista para ser víctima de la españofobia de los trolls. Gracias
@LoneWarrior : I don’t get the point. If the game’s good then vote for it but, if it isn’t just don’t. If you downvote a game just because you obviously hate his author then you should not vote at all. Your way of thinking is juvenile and flawed.
I’ve seen too much flame wars on EAB or other, making me quit these places.
Right on, thanks for expressing your views on this again. The Amiga community appears to be quite fractured, its time to all come together and enjoy new games
Yo sólo hago juegos de amiga por que me gusta. El año pasado publiqué Cuba 1898, Blain home, Lord vader, super capacitator. Y ahora estoy con el minizorro. Todas las semanas recibo ataques de los trolls. Trabajo mucho en el diseño, en gráficos y en el desarrollo de mis juegos. Además hago ediciones fisicas para los aficionados a bajo coste. Y eso a algunos no les gusta. También colaboro como grafista en varios juegos y demos.
add all AMIGA 2019 HOMEBREW GAMES TO THE LIST ADD THIS TOO https://www.facebook.com/AmigaCocoBanana/

My understanding was that it was released in 2018 and as such was not eligible. But hopefully more people will check out your game now.
