Well, the 2006 RPG Maker Magazine Awards have finally come to an end. It was a long time in the making, but thanks to the entire RPG Maker community helping in the nominations and voting, we were able able to finish this massive event!

The Awards, nominated and voted on by the actual community, are given to the games, produced within the last year, and their creators in recognition of their mutual excellence in the field of RPG Maker.

The top 2 in each category this year will receive awards, which will be noted in the RPGMM Game Vault and be used as that developer sees fit to promote his or her game.

All RPG Maker games were eligible to win awards this year. However, only games made between the end of the Awards and the beginning of the next Awards will be allowed next year.

Note: Some games were removed from the nomination pool because they were demos instead of full games. Demos are only allowed to win the "Most Promising Demo" Award.
