BAFTA Game Awards Red Carpet Interviews!
BAFTA Game Awards Results!
Yesterday, the British Academy Games Awards took place in Tobacco Dock, London and yours truly was sent to the red carpet to meet some of the stars. On subsequent pages below you’ll find chats with John Carmack, David Braben and Viva Seifert.
But first, here’s a rundown of the winners:
Best Game: Fallout 4
Best British Game: Batman: Arkham Knight
Artistic Achievement: Ori and the Blind Forest
Game Design: Bloodborne
Original Property: Until Dawn
Persistent Game: Prison Architect
Story: Life is Strange
AMD eSports Audience Award: SMITE
Ones to Watch: SUNDOWN
Fellowship: John Carmack
Everybody’s gone to the Rapture won three awards for Audio Achievement, Performer (Merle Dandridge as Kate Collins) and Music for the composition by Jessica Curry.
Her Story also scooped three awards for Sam Barlow winning the Debut Game, Game Innovation and Mobile & Handheld categories.
Rocket League was another triple winner taking home the Family Game, Multiplayer and Sport awards.
It seems reasonable to say that the BAFTA’s have a bit of a console slant to them this year, particularly when you consider the disastrous PC launch of Arkham Knight, coupled with the PS4 winners of Everybody’s gone to the Rapture (PS4 but coming to PC) and Bloodborne (PS4 exclusive).
