Overview

ŸPurpose

The Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association (CESA) has selected and awarded outstanding computer entertainment software products of all computer platforms including home videogame systems and personal computers since 1996 based on the spirit of "openness", "fairness" and "justness".
Considering computer entertainment software to be a cultural form, the event is held to contribute to its growth and also to vitalize the computer entertainment software industry. By encouraging voting by the public and publicizing nominated and awarded products, it is hoped that the social recognition of the computer entertainment software industry is to be expanded and advanced. This year once again nominations and awards will be carried out in three separate categories, namely; "Games of the Year Division" for released products; "Future Division" for pre-release products. From this year the "Indies Division" is unified with "CESA Students Game Award" to form "Amateur Division" for selecting and awarding.
