Although we’re very proud of our selection of the best Android games of the year, we’re always interested to see what happens at the IMGA. The International Mobile Gaming Awards have reached their 15th edition to celebrate mobile videogames. At its annual gala, they award the best of the best and this year, they’ve selected 153 nominees for best mobile game.
What are the IMGA?
The International Mobile Gaming Awards were created in 2004 to celebrate the best mobile games of the year. They were began back when not many people had much confidence in the future of mobile games. Obviously, anyone who thought this way was clearly mistaken, considering the current success of the industry, where games for Android and iOS are becoming more and more relevant.
The IMGA aren’t only famous for celebrating games for mobile devices, but for awarding and discovering some of the most relevant titles: Angry Birds, Monument Valley and Badland are some of the names that the IMGA recognized before they became massively successful. And the best thing about about these awards is that they’ve expanded their frontiers: not only do they have their international awards, but they also have special editions for China, Middle Eastern and North African countries, and Southeast Asian countries. These markets are becoming more and more relevant, especially with the growing presence of high quality studios.
On this occasion, March 19th is the date of this year’s ceremony which will be celebrated in San Francisco. There, we’ll find out which games are worthy of this prestigious award. However, the people have a say in choosing their favorite game too, so we recommend that you make a stop by the IMGA website to vote for and support your favorite game.
And the nominees for the 15th annual IMGA are…
In this 15th edition more than 800 games were presented, which were whittled down until only 153 remained. A jury made up of 365 experts from around the world are in charge of choosing the winners.
