Photo taken when we first arrived at the awards show.
Last night, Dan, Ian, Aaron, Will and Megan drove up to Los Angeles to represent us at the Inside Gaming Awards 2013 with the intention to just enjoy the show and party. We were nominated for three awards: Best Voice Acting, Best Cooperative Multiplayer and Gamers’ Choice Award. All the nominees were from amazing developers of hugely popular games from 2013 (nominees list here).
Our team with the award for Best Cooperative Multiplayer for BattleBlock Theater
We had no idea what would happen going into the show and were just honored to have even been nominated amongst such well crafted games. When the category for Best Cooperative Multiplayer started up, we were stunned to hear our game called out as the winner!
Thank you so much to Inside Gaming for awarding us this honor and thank you to all the fans out there who play our games–We do what we do for you and for that awesome feeling of camaraderie playing video games with fellow gamers, friends and loved ones. Special thank you shout out to the people at Microsoft and Xbox!
Happy Holidays! This was our last Play with the Devs stream of 2013, where we play against the community in our own game, BattleBlock Theater.
We played some Muckle mode in part 1 and Grab the Gold mode in part 2 of this episode. We gave out prizes to the highest scoring team in each mode and sent Gestureworks Gameplay codes to our favorite questions in the chat room during the live stream. Congrats to the two winning teams:
