I'm a bit of a stathead, so here's some more stats on the AGS Awards (see also the Wiki page)
Both Ivy and Le Woltaire broke the previous record for the most nominations. Ivy got 15 with Nanobots and Little Girl and Le Woltaire went one better with 15 for A Second Face and one for the Dust to Water demo.
If you add up all-time nominations, this is the Top 10:
Dave Gilbert 35
Herculean Effort 32
Le Woltaire 24
Crystal Shard 17
So Grundislav has leapfrogged Dave and Herculean Effort up to 2nd this year while Ivy, Le Woltaire and Progz have entered the top 10.
