Top titles and creators vying for awards across 16 categories
Polkastarter Gaming will hold its first Web3 GAM3 Awards on December 15, 2022. It’s a huge step for the industry as blockchain-based titles look to establish themselves as a legitimate part of the multi-billion dollar world of gaming.
Development studios and independent creators have spent 2022 teasing us with trailers and releasing early versions of the upcoming games. 2023 promises to be the year when blockchain games blossom into maturity.
Voting is open now for fans to join the conversation and have their say.
The GAM3 Awards
Polkastarter Gaming’s inaugural GAM3 Awards will give recognition to an exciting and growing part of the Web3 industry. Alongside 13 award categories specifically for blockchain games, there will be three extra awards paying homage to the wider Web3 gaming community.
106 games were put forward for the awards, with Polygon, BNB Chain and Solana being the top three networks represented. The nominees have been whittled down by an expert jury to 32 games. Polygon and Immutable X have eight nominees apiece.
Omar Ghanem, Head of Gaming at Polkastarter, had this to say about the GAM3 Awards:
We would like to thank each and all of the 38 jury members involved in the first round of the GAM3 Awards voting. A 100% voting participation despite the task at hand with over 100 game titles to go through, is further proof of how excited everyone is to see the web3 gaming sector’s development and growth.Omar Ghanem, Head of Gaming at Polkastarter
