We are best! We raise our guitars to the sky and destroy our competitors with a lightning-fast awesome shredding tune. At least that was what the jury thought at this year’s Norwegian Game Awards. We won the prize for Best Innovation. We are very happy for this honor, and have goofy smiles all over our faces. This is what the jury had to say:
Whilst many of the entries in this years competition seemed to focus on careful execution rather than new ideas Apocalypse stood out as something entertaining even though it was far from being finished. What the demo currently lacks in variation and visual finish is less important than what it promises to become once new levels, abilities and strategies are put in place. The jury feels that the team have created a story where you play as evil & immoral not because it’s supposed to be edgy or “different”, but simply because it’s great fun!
We would like to congratulate the other teams who won. Game of The Year went to Owlboy, the only way this would have been more awesome, was if it was named Ninjaboy, but I digress. The prize for Best Execution went to our old archnemesis Illuminatics for their game Evil Jr. We’re not sure it includes any ninjas, but great work none the less. Garbalicious ran off with the prize for Best Concept, and The Forklift Game was awarded the Comittee’s Choice. Awesomez!
