A MAZE. / Berlin 2017__April 26 - 29, 2017

6th International Independent Videogames and Playful Media Festival



We just announced the nominees and honorable mentions of this years A MAZE./ Berlin, which will now compete in all categories and be exhibited at the festival. The final jury decides the winners and awards them at the Award Show on April 28th. Have a look at the amazing selection here.

Since 2012 A MAZE. awards The Most Amazing Game. The winner is selected by an interdisciplinary, international and 100% independent jury. 2014 A MAZE. extended the award to three categories and the audience award. 2015 we’ve introduced our fourth category the "Other Dimensions Award” which is dedicated to play in virtual reality.

Now in respect of the forward-thinking and game changing development of the creators some of the 2012 award conditions and categories are not legit anymore. We've decided to adapt on the exciting movement and made some extensions: The categories are: “Most Amazing Award”, “Human Human Machine Award”, “Long Feature Award”, “Digital Moment Award”, “Collider Award” and “Audience Award”.

The most amazing trophy consists out of three independent elements: a pink silicone cube, a metal ball and a concrete socket. Thorsten S. Wiedemann, the director of A MAZE. explains: "The pink silicon stands for interactivity and playfulness, the concrete socket for culture and meaning, and the embedded metal ball for connectivity and completeness."

Develpers could register or use a previously used account to submit their game (for all award categories, submission-fee 55€) between December 1st, 2016, and March 5th, 2017 (extendet from March 1st). Check the Conditions of Participation .
