A HUGE thank you to our prize sponsor, PLAYISM! 

PLAYISM has, from the very beginning, been driven to deliver Indie Games to as many players as possible. They began by creating a platform from which they could distribute indie games. From there they started localizing into multiple languages to overcome borders and then expanding into Steam and Console platforms.

By working with small teams, and independent creators, PLAYISM allows game designers to get their games in front of as many eyes as possible, and live their dream.

PLAYISM has been kind enough to donate the Idol Manager Signed Music CD & Digital Game for us to give away to you!! Thank you again, PLAYISM!!!
