Uncharted 4 and Inside Win Big At BAFTA Games Awards

By Gizmodo UK on at

Naughty Dog's 2016 Indiana Jones-style game, Uncharted 4, has taken home Best Game at the recent BAFTA Games Awards.

But, although it won the biggest award, it didn't walk away with the most - that honour went to Playdead's puzzle-platforming story game, Inside, with four wins across the night including Best Artistic Achievement and Narrative.

Meanwhile, the award for Best Game Innovation went to That Dragon, Cancer, an autobiographical game by a couple who lost their son, Joel, to cancer when he was just five years old. "Our life with Joel was hard but it was really beautiful," said game developer and Joel's mother, Amy Green, at the ceremony. "When we thought about creating a game that would become the only legacy he would have - the legacy we chose and he could not - we created a game that was hard to play. But we believe it was beautiful. And we thank you for believing the same thing."

British game studio Ghost Town Games, run by Phil Duncan and Oli DeVine, was an enterprise that cost the two men a lot: they both quit their jobs and used their savings to make chaotic multiplayer cooking game Overcooked, which took home two BAFTAs - Best Family Game and Best British Game. They managed to make a suitably British impression on the crowd by being so surprised by the awards that they couldn't find their speech. All together now: awwwww.
