Touch Arcade forums' Game of the Year 2015 [Nominations 12/21-12/28]

Touch Arcade forums’ Game of the Year: 2015


Nominations Starting December 21, 2015 and ending December 28, 2015
Participants may nominate up to 10 titles for game of the year; multiple nominations are cool but games nominated should be those that are viewed as THE best game this year or close contenders - not a ‘top 10’ count but only your ‘best of the best.’ If someone nominates more than 10 games or posts nominations twice then only the first 10 will be counted.

Nominations will close after December 27, 2015 and the top contenders will be used in a poll for final voting. The voting time frame will be from December 28, 2015 – January 4, 2016 with the highest vote count winning.

Developers should not nominate or vote for their own games; recruiting outside votes is also uncool – please do not vote for your own game or ask Twitter/Facebook/etc to register just to vote. However, no votes/nominations will be disqualified.

Participants are discouraged from nominating games before all releases of the year have made it in.

If you need to make a change to your nominations it's preferred that you edit your original post and not make a second post.

Open to feedback on rules/wording in original post and timeframes...

Ugh. I don't think I can decide on just 10 games! This is gonna be so though. There were so many good games this year.

All I can say is that WE ARE ALL WINNERS this year! Lol

Let's get the ball rolling then:

HoPiKo
Prune
Her Story

Edit: just noticed that you didn't want noms yet. I'll definitely review my list before the end of the voting period, and I've got a couple if spare slots in case something does blow me away between now and the end of the year.

Edit2: Added Rust Bucket as a late contender.

Edit3: Decided to prune my list. The other games on my list were games I would consider voting for if these don't make the poll, but not at the same level as these three.

It's probably got be something like don't starve, or one of these premium ones.
Downwell was amazing in its pure innovation but hate to say the mobile version came second to the PC version. Not sure about don't starve, only ever played PC version.
It'll be exciting who wins!
