Aulery is an annual award for young companies that consistently develop in the innovative technologies environment and promote the culture of entrepreneurship. Statuettes are awarded by a non profit association of the Polish Hall - the oldest active barcamp initiative in Poland.
Aulery are a prize awarded for real achievements. We want to show these companies that have really good ideas and, what's important here, know how to translate make profit of them - the organizers say. - We’d like to show good examples of companies and people who built the real value through their decisions. We want to reward those companies that were able to survive the initial period and are now rapidly developing.
In this year's fourth edition of the contest participated 60 companies. In addition to Can't Stop Games, among the winners were UXPin.com and Brand24.pl.
Meanwhile, during the fair GameDay Expo 2012 the company was awarded first prize in the Polish Game Awards for the game "Pirates Saga", which was considered by the jury to be the best browser game of 2011. This is the first official award, though this Polish game was already repeatedly recognized (one of the five best games of piracy on Facebook by the Games Blog portal, the best of seven games of piracy on Facebook by the GamePro portal, one of the ten games better than Farmville by the Microsoft msn portal!).
One of the characteristics of "Pirates Saga" is a broad, independent fan movement.
