The public vote at this year’s German Game Developer Award has gone to Runes of Magic, with the game lifting the trophy in the category of ‘Best International PC Game 2009’. A great award fitting for reaching yet another milestone: we can currently point to over 2.5 million registered players in the USA, Europe and Korea.
We summoned you to vote in the public ballot for your favourite games of 2009. Within the category of ‘Best International PC Game 2009’, Runes of Magic found itself having to battle it out with titles such as RISEN and Anno 1404. The award ceremony was held at a grand gala event in the Essen Lichtburg – Germany’s largest film theatre.
The award was accepted on behalf of Frogster and Runewaker Entertainment by Frogster management board member Dirk Weyel, who commented:
“We are thrilled to receive this trophy, especially with it being one awarded by actual players themselves. We would expressly like to thank our community and we'll continue to work intensively on offering players the maximum of fun with Runes of Magic.”
To celebrate the day and also as a thank-you, we're giving every player with a character that reached level 11 at least 100 Rubies which will be automatically credited to players’ accounts in the course of the day.

Runes of Magic has also been nominated for further honours: In the ‘Massively’s End-of-the-Year Reader’s Choice Awards’ Runes of Magic entered into various categories by the editorial team. Voting is continuing up until 31st December of this year.
*Rubies have to be used within 30 days due to technical limitations.
