The 2016 Greentooth Awards: Winners!

The Greentooth Awards: Winners!

The votes have been counted and we’re absolutely thrilled to announce the winners of the first annual Greentooth awards. The Greentooth awards seek to honor the best of the best from four categories: Polycounters, software, studios, and games, all chosen by the Polycount community of course.


Each winner will receive a physical trophy, something we’re very excited about! Unfortunately we can’t reveal the full details about trophy quite yet, as we’re still finalizing the design.
