The ENnie award nominations are in. Armitage Files has been nominated for best adventure, with Shadows over Filmland taking an honourable mention. And Jérome gets a richly deserved nod for his cover artwork on Rough Magicks. Last July in Page XX, Jérome let us into the secrets of his photomontage technique in creating this amazing piece of art.
I didn’t enter the books into specific categories, so I am not sure how they made their choices. Perhaps I should have placed Shadows more carefully (perhaps Best Setting, or Best Art , Interior)
Due to my cock-up over release dates, Mutant City Blues didn’t get the chance to be nominated this year or last.
Brennan Taylor gets a Best Writing nomination for How We Came to Live Here, a game which I had feared would slip under the radar. This will give it a much needed boost.
Jason Morningstar, who wrote The Black Drop for Pelgrane has demonstrated himself to be multi-talented with an art nomination for Escape from Tentacle City.
Cublicle 7 is festooned with nominations, including an amazing four for Best Product, and I tip them for a silver or gold in Best Product for Doctor Who, though they might have to wrangle their potential voters a little if they are feeling mercenary.
At this point it becomes a popularity contest, so the big publishers will probably take the metal, but it’s very pleasing to be nominated.
