Mod of the Year Awards (MOTY 2007)
Mod DB, the premier website dedicated to game modification, is calling on gamers for submissions for the annual Mod of the Year Awards (MOTY 2007). The contest will run through Jan. 15, 2008. The MOTY Awards showcase the best game modifications (aka "mods") in the world and recognize the mod teams behind them. A video game "mod" is a variation of a game or in-game elements. It can add new content to the underlying game (partial conversions) or offer an entirely new game (total conversions). The awards pay tribute to the creativity, dedication, and hard work independent developers and amateur game designers put into creating unique experiences through video and interactive features, free downloads and consumer voting. This year's contest is again sponsored by The Art Institute Online, the U.S. Navy and Alienware. Mod DB is seeking submissions of modified games, either partial or total game conversions of existing titles, to add to its existing database of over 4,000. Entries will be voted on by visitors to Mod DB and the top 100 game mods will be posted by Dec. 15. A final round of voting will determine the illustrious "Mod of the Year" and secondary prize winners. For more information, visit moddb.com.
