Tonight is the night – the annual excitement of the Independent Game Festival Awards, followed by the achingly long endurance test of the Game Developers Choice Awards. Maybe it will be different this year? Maybe I won’t lose my mind just over halfway through and start writing insults? Who’s to know? To make it more exciting, rather than clutter your Twitter feed, this year there’s to be an attempt – technology depending – to live blog it all.
Update: And it’s all over. The stunning Papers, Please swept, as we guessed it would, and in the AAA category the very good The Last Of Us yet again scooped most prizes it was offered. It would have been nice to see The Stanley Parable and others score a couple of Last Of Us’s categories, for sure, but such is the way of the GDC awards.
This is very much dependent on the magic of 4G wifi hotspots. If it works, then below here you’ll see my evolving reporting of the evening. If it doesn’t, you’ll likely see random swear words appearing, before giving up and watching the stream on Gamespot or something. Exciting!
Important! No need to refresh this page. It works by actual magic. Read from the bottom up.
