The "Blendies"

Each year, IGA awards a handful of accolades to our member studios, supported games, and Minions. Unlike many awards programs, we don't base it on sales; it's all about the game. Here's a list of our past winners. You owe it to yourself to check out every one of these phenomenal games, designers and publishers.
