Last night was BAFTA night for the video games industry, with everyone getting all dressed up and then waiting with bated breath if their game was nominated.
The big winner, as you might expect after the many GOTY awards handed out at the end of 2017, were Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice and all those involved with the game’s creation at Ninja Theory. They took away five awards, but almost everything else was up for grabs, with quite a few unexpected winners, including Best Game, which went to What Remains of Edith Finch.
Tim Schafer was also awarded a BAFTA Fellowship, which means we can all say he’s a jolly good fellow, and so say all of us!
