Bury Me, My Love and MyoBeatz among 2018 Games for Change Awards nominees

What Remains of Edith Finch, Please Knock on My Door, Life is Strange: Before The Storm, and Tacoma all vie for one of the four major awards at this year’s show.

The annual Games for Change festival has announced the 13 games in the running for 4 different awards at its 2018 Games for Change Awards, with Life is Strange: Before the Storm, Antura and the Letters, and MyoBeatz each receiving nominations in multiple categories.

The four individual awards offered at the event (Best Gameplay, Most Innovative, Most Significant Impact, and Best Learning Game) aim to call out exemplary titles that also advocate for social impact and change in some way, shape, or form. 

As always, each and every game nominated for an award is also eligible for the Game of the Year award as well, an award that goes to the game that best represents the qualities of all four categories. Last year, Walden, A Game walked away with that highest honor.
