It’s awards season and Scottish companies are picking up gongs, trophies and accolades left, right and centre. Earlier this week at the prestigious Develop Awards, which took place at a glittering and star-studded event in glamorous Brighton, recruitment agency Specialmove and CGI experts Axis Animation both scooped prizes.
Specialmove, which specialises in recruitment within the games industry, walked off with the RECRUITMENT category trophy.
Axis Animation, the studio behind the renowned Dead Island trailer earlier this year, picked up the VISUAL OUTSOURCER award.
Meanwhile, closer to home, The List magazine published its list of the 30 Best Scottish Websites. In at number 26 is the mighty Square Go, home of games new, previews and reviews – and official ally of Scottishgames.net.
Congratulations to Phil Harris, the editor and the whole Square Go team, as well as to Specialmove and Axis, all of whom deserve more recognition than they get.
So, who’s up for the first annual Scottishgames awards in 2011?
Yes, most definitely. Make it so!
