Good afternoon from Mexico!
Last night at Unite Boston - for those of you who donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know - the Unity Awards ceremony took place, and Kerbal Space Program was awarded not one, but two awards: Best Gameplay and Community Choice! It's an amazing honor and weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re very glad the KSP community supported us in such a major way. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Being part of such a strong lineup of games, and walking away with two awards is something we never saw coming, but there are also many games that were nominated, or won awards, that you really should check out:
First and foremost: the winner of the Golden Cube, Cities Skylines. This game is a fantastic city builder with a great developer and publisher behind it. The first expansion pack, which is right around the corner, also looks very promising. Endless Legend walked away with the award for best 3D experience, and this 4X turn based fantasy game should definitely be on your list if youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re into the genre. Ori and the Blind Forest is a stunning looker. In this 2D platformer you explore a deeply emotional story about love and sacrifice. Did we say itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a beautiful already? It took the award for best 2D experience! Probably the only riot training program weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve ever seen: Anarcute won best student project! In this game your goal is to escape the police, gather a group of friends and destroy literally everything. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s only a matter of time until Danny2462 gets his hands on this, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re sure.
Apart from making games, the Unity engine is often used to create a wide range of tools, art and virtual reality programs. In these categories the winners were Parachute Training Simulator (best visual simulation), UEFA Champions League Nissan Orchestra (best of non game), and Tilt Brush (best VR experience). Finally, Chronos - Time Control walked away with the best store asset award.
Unfortunately the list would grow a bit long if we mentioned all the nominees, but rest assured theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all amazing in their own way. A full list is available at the Unity website.
Thank you to Unity and you all for the awards and a massive congratulations to all the winners on behalf of all of us here at Squad!
