Beginning of December 2012, Jesper Engström from Talawa Games got to travel to Brazil to collect the award for ‘Best Sound’ and ‘Best Game’ in the Brazil International Games festival (BIG). While being very happy for the whole Unmechanical family, I am personally, obviously most excited about the Best Sound award. As I have previously said, the response I have gotten from the gaming community for my work on this game has been overwhelming to say the least.
A big thank you for buying and playing this fantastic game, and an even bigger thanks to you who have bought the soundtrack and have contacted me just to say thanks. It really means a lot to me.
Quoted from the Unmechanical website:
Unmechanical the BIG Winner!
Proud winners of Best Game & Best Sound at BIG, Brazilian International Games Festival
Last week I went to Sao Paolo Brazil with no expectations what so ever except seeing a new place, meeting tones of interesting people and telling our dev story during my 1h talk. I got this opportunity thanks to Unmechanical being nominated for Best Game among 4 other great games, Tiny & Big, Papo & Yo, Awesomenauts and Capsized. we were also nominated for best sound and art among a ton of beautiful games.
The jury consisted game dev gurus like Chris Avallone, Jason Della Rocca & Leah Hoyer.
On behalf of the whole Unmechanical team, Talawa Games, Teotl Studios & FutureGames! Thank you BIG Festival for the prizes Best Game & Best Sound, for giving us the opportunity to exchange experiences, share ideas, and for all of us to keep on making great games!
