The nominees have been announced for the Games for Change Awards, which celebrate the year’s best social impact games. The award categories include Best Gameplay, Most Significant Impact, and Most Innovative. The eight finalists, narrowed down from a field of more than 150 titles, will also be considered for the top honor, Game of the Year, which is awarded to the game that best exemplifies all three categories.
A jury of leaders from the gaming, philanthropic, media, and tech communities evaluated all game submissions. The winners will be announced at the Games for Change Festival’s Awards Ceremony on April 22, hosted by Jesse Schell. A full list of the nominees can be found at Games for Change’s home page.
