TIGA Games Industry Awards
A quick post from me? On a Monday? Well, let’s see…
So, last week me and Tim went to the TIGA Games Industry Awards. We’d been nominated for 2 awards. Nurse Quest was nominated in the Action/Adventure category and Blockbusters in the Serious Games category. Sadly we didn’t win, we genuinely hadn’t expected to. In the grand scheme of things we’re new to the industry and getting a nomination was an unexpected joy. The big winner from the evening was The Chinese Room for Dear Esther which is a visually stunning, explorative narrative kind of an experience, a ghost story. It’s well worth a look if you haven’t seen it already.
After playing Mush pretty solidly for the past month or so on my phone I was quite exited to meet the Angry Mango team who are all lovely and full of brilliant ideas, I’m really interested to see what they come up with next. Sitting on a table next to some fine folks from Mediatonic meant I got to bore them endlessly of my love for their work.
Attending the event meant we got to meet and talk to a lot of really interesting people in the industry and hang out with our friends from State of Play and Games Britannia (um, and drink far too much wine… sorry everybody) And now (since the hangover lifted) I’m full of buzz and bounce, I’m hopeful for the future and challenged to take one of those shiny tigers home with us.
