There are so many quality Free RPGs on the Internet that, even though Free games are considered for the Indie Game of the Year Award, they really deserve their own category. This category honors the game designers who make their works of passion and then offer them for free. Note: If a Free game wins the main award and this Sub-Award, the runner up for this Sub-Award is chosen instead.
Taking the Apocalypse Engine into diceless territory and making it about queer communities? Not just an amazing concept, but brilliant execution.
Dream Askew effortlessly ports Powered by the Apocalypse play into GM-ful mode, which is icing on the cake for this queer-themed game about community and its place in our (future) lives.
A combination of good rules and nostalgia, all in a pretty package.
Great story game about ladies-in-waiting. We need more games like this.
Intriguing premise that could be a great "gateway" introduction to RPGs for people not interested in your typical hack-slash-kill
A great take on faeries and their schemes.
Simple, quick to learn, flexible
