Posted by hb on December 9th, 2018 @12:35AM

 

The nominations have been counted. Now, we can reveal the final nominees for all 15 categories of the 2018 Spelunky Discord Community Awards.

 

The default number of nominees for each category is six, but some have five or seven based on nomination points. Best Speedrun Challenge has three nominees, due to the smaller nature of the category. All nominees are listed in alphabetical order in this article, with the exception of Best Kapala World Cup Moment which is presented in chronological order.

 

The final round of voting has now opened -- you can vote here.

 

The deadline for voting is Saturday 15 December at 23:59 GMT / 18:59 ET / 15:59 PT.
