Tim Schafer's latest video game Brutal Legend
has been nominated in two
categories at this year's GDC awards: Best Writing and Best Audio. Congratulations and good luck.
Those of you who were expecting Tales of Monkey Island
to get any (and I mean any
) nominations will be disappointed, as there are Pulitzer-worthy masterpieces like Halo 3: ODST
to nominate for Best Writing instead.Update
: Brutal Legend has been nominated in five categories at the 13th Annual Interactive Achievement Awards (pdf
): Strategy/Simulation Game of the Year, Outstanding Character Performance (for Eddie Riggs), Outstanding Achievement in Original Story, Outstanding Achievement in Soundtrack, and Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction. Congratulations, once again, and good luck: they've earned the nomination.
On the other hand, Tales
has been snubbed again. This may or may not be due to the awards sucking. It's great they nominated Brutal Legend
, but - unless they they hate good writing and extra drippings of fun but just have
to nominate Schafer because of who he is - this a serious oversight.
