Entries are now open for the BAFTA Scotland Guru Live Online programme. Guru is a virtual festival aimed at helping new up-and-coming talent in film, games and television get to the next stage in their career.
Autonauts, the robot-based colonise-em-up developed by Denki & published by Curve, has picked up the 2020 BAFTA Scotland Game Award trophy at last night's virtual ceremony.
We all love an award ceremony: the glamour, the drama, the bit where someone reads the wrong name - and who doesn’t like winning prizes? Perhaps the real value of award shows however, in the world of games anyway, is the annual chance to take a look backwards in an industry that’s always hurtling ahead. We can celebrate our achievements, sure, but we can also take stock of things and dig into just what goes into making award-worthy projects. This was the sentiment behind BAFTA Scotland’s recent Game Design event, which hosted a candid discussion between some of the personnel from this year’s nominees for the BAFTA Scotland Game Award.
Become a BAFTA AWARD WINNER! Time is ticking down, but there's still time to enter the 2020 BAFTA Scotland awards. The games category is open to ALL developers, ANY platform/business model/genre. It's even FREE to enter.
