The Origins Game Fair took place this past weekend, and we are happy to announce that Starfinder won the Fan Favorite Best Roleplaying Game award at the 2018 Origins Awards on Saturday, presented by the Academy of Adventure Gaming Arts and Design.
We are honored, and humbled, to be chosen as the best RPG of the year by our fans. As game designers, winning any award is always gratifying, but fan-voted awards are especially meaningful. Fans are the people who play our games, and without players, the games themselves don't serve much purpose. We want to thank everyone who voted for Starfinder, as well as every fan who plays Starfinder, talks about the game with friends, and helps make Starfinder's player base a vibrant community.
We also want to thank everyone involved in the creation of the game. This was very much a team effort on a massive scale, and involved some of the most involved collaborative work we've ever done. The Starfinder design team, creative directors, developers, editors, authors, artists, art directors, and graphic designers all did an amazing amount of work to make this game happen. And even beyond that, everyone at Paizo took on some of the herculean workload needed to put the physical book in the hands of players.
Looking forward to the future, we plan to continue creating more exciting content for Starfinder in the months and years to come, and we can't wait for you to see what we have planned. Keep aiming for the stars!
