BAFTA announce Young Game Designers winners

Wins For Braben, Mordor And Alien: BAFTA Game Awards

Last night, BAFTA gathered in London to dish out sinister metal masks to a chosen few gamesfolk who had been found worthy of such an honour. I tend to be dismissive of Awards Shows, unless something that I really like wins a tiny trophy - then I'm quite happy and momentarily convinced that the world is just and right. It happened with Cave Johnson at…

BAFTA Opens 2015 Young Game Designers Competition

Heyo – if you don't follow the BAFTA Games Twitter feed you might have missed this one – the Young Game Designers competition has come round again and is now accepting entries. The competition is for 10 – 18-year-olds (which I suppose is one definition of young, although I still get ID-ed I'll have you know) who have ideas for games or fancy trying to…
