2022 NYX Game of the Year

The NYX Game of the Year (GotY) is one of the most prestigious titles awarded to the best game submitted into the NYX Game Awards annually. This achievement resembles top-notch quality in all aspects of the game, taking into account the overall gameplay, storytelling skills, mechanics, visuals, and many others that dominates the scene.

The 2022 NYX Game of the Year was awarded to Dying Light 2 Stay Human by Techland after a very meticulous evaluation by the virtuous judges. The game itself has demonstrated an impeccable gameplay that portrays the labyrinthine storytelling which compliments its skillful animation that sealed its fate as a victor that triumphs the rest, nabbing the Platinum Award in Best Gameplay, Best Audio Design, Best Character Design, Best Game Design, Best Experience, Best Art Direction, and more notable achievements for 2022.

2022 Best Independent Game of the Year

Annually, the NYX Game Awards will also select one of the most outstanding winners to receive the Special Recognition Award from all the most spectacular submissions within the year. This time around, Moss: Book ll by Polyarc was granted Special Recognition for the Best Independent Game of the Year for its exceptional environment as each scene is an immersive diorama itself accompanied by its riveting narration that perfectly captures the essence of the tale. This game managed to uphold its reputation by not reconstructing its formula and instead added some tweaks from its predecessor from 2018.

Deadlines & Fees

NYX Game Awards makes every effort to keep entry cost low. Thus, our entry fee is $220 for Game categories, $190 for Game Creativity (Campaign) categories, and $119 for Game Creativity (Single) categories.

Rather than increasing the fee for each entry, fees are only charged in order to cover administrative costs like printing, mailing, and data organization. For this reason, each participant is charged a flat $30 annual administrative fee. When all participants pay the same low fee, those submitting more than one entry will actually pay less than if fees were on a sliding scale.
