Keen Awards 2024: Nominations

Post by Quillax »

Here it is! Nominate the people and stuff from 2024 that were really keen in your opinion! Unlike previous times, when Keen Awards started after its respective year ended, this Keen Awards will start very early and run almost year-round. This is so that people can nominate something as soon as it comes out rather than have to remember it by the time the event starts. Other than that, it works just like the previous nominations.

No deadline for nominations has been set, although it's likely going to be in early 2025, maybe somewhere from mid-January to mid-February.

Feel free to make any suggestions!

1.1: Best Vorticon Mod (incl. level packs)

1.2: Best Galaxy/Dreams Mod (ditto)

1.3: Best Fangame/Other Mod

I'll publish my Revival of Bliss this year.

In case someone was to nominate me for the most promising project, just to save you the trouble of adding and then removing me afterwards, Quillax.

In case you didn't know, Keen Awards 2024 is for anything from 2024, and only 2024. For 4.3, I left out Aliens and Their Just Desserts because the last sign of progress appears to be early 2023, unless Ceilick has been posting about it on Discord lately. If that's the case, could you please show me a message for proof? For 1.2, almost all of the mods you listed were released before 2024, so they don't count unless they get an update this year (preferably one that's more than just minor fixes of bugs and typos). Revival of Bliss hasn't been available to the public yet, so I don't think it should count for 1.2 until it comes out.

I'm not sure which category it would go into, so I picked the best one I can see. I'd like to nominate namida's "Commander Keen: Galaxy Reimagined", if I may, for 1.3: Best Fangame/Other Mod. Topic: https://pckf.com/viewtopic.php?t=17015
