Rob Lang rightly pointed out that there are no free RPGs nominated for an Ennie this year. What gives? There is a “Free Product” category, but none of them are a stand alone RPG. What’s worse, they’re all big name companies putting out token products. Will these companies even care if they win those categories? Is the Ennies only catering to established companies with money now? That would be disappointing.
In full disclosure I did have a free RPG submitted but I really didn’t expect to be nominated or win. I’m echoing the frustration over at 1KM1KT.
