If you haven't noticed yet from eitherMinecraftwiki orMinecraftforum, Minecraft is nominate for the 2010 Indie of the Year Awards. As the time of this post, there is 9 days left before round 2 begins, which still could be just enough to help Notch win the award.
If you don't know much about IndieDB here is a little summary of what the awards are all about :
Indie of the Year is the largest celebration of hobbyist, amateur and professional Indie developers. With record attendance and a massive number of updates, releases and new projects 2010 was a year like no other, packed to bursting with goodies to make anyone who is tired of the boring triple A games excited again! Up until Jan 1st 2011 join us and help celebrate your community, culture and give thanks to the developers by voting for your favorite projects. For the first time in IndieDB history we have a press panel which sees personalities from other websites like Joystiq and Rock Paper Shotgun have their say were it counts. Welcome to the 1st Annual Indie of the Year Awards.
What if he does though? What do we get out of it? Well it might not seem like alot, but like the title suggests if he does win he will integrate cake within the game. Not to sure as to whetheror not people really want to have cake in the game, but by helping Minecraft become #1 we might just get more out of it then maybe just cake!
So why not head on over and vote for Minecraft for this years indie of the year award!
