Cambridge company triumphs at British Academy Games Awards
Cambridge-based games developer Ninja Theory won more BAFTA awards than any other company last week, with its game Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice picking up the awards for Audio Achievement, Artistic Achievement, Best Performer, British Game and Game Beyond Entertainment.
Laura Dilloway, who works for Cambridge games designer Inkle Studios, is a juror for the Artistic Achievement category at the BAFTAs.
Laura commented: “Incredibly, nearly 20% of the UK games industry is based in Cambridge, not to mention the highly lauded educational courses at Rizing Games (based out of Cambridge Regional College) among others.
"With such a concentration of talent and experience in the area, it is no surprise to see local companies working on everything from mobile to Virtual Reality, challenging the boundaries of games as both an experience and an art form.
"Ninja Theory's amazing success at the BAFTAs not only highlights an extremely important issue, it also truly shows how relevant, diverse, and applicable games can be as a medium.”
