As a games and interactive company based in Welsh capital city Cardiff, it is very exciting to see the games industry in Wales becoming one of its fastest developing creative industries. The BAFTA Cymru Games Awards have always championed the creativity and talent of the Welsh game scene, so we are very proud to have our work recognised by them again this year.
We celebrated our nominations in style at the BAFTA Cymru Games Award Nominees Party in Cardiff’s one and only Techniquest!
First established in 2013, the BAFTA Cymru Games ceremony rewards one Best Game Award each year, and we’re absolutely delighted to have Toot’s Race nominated for the 2016 award, especially as this has reportedly been a year of record entries from the Welsh games industry.
Commendations to acknowledge excellence in four categories are also presented at the award ceremony: Gameplay Design, Artistic Achievement, Technical Achievement and Sound and Music. We’re honoured to have Boj Smoothies nominated for 3 of these game commendations.
The winner of the award and the commendations will be announced at the awards ceremony at the Wales Games Development Show on Saturday 18th June 2016 – wish us luck!
