Osao Games and Nyamyam win big at Game Connection Development Awards

Game Connection Europe 2014 has announced the winners of its Game Connection Development Awards.

A mixed bag in terms of categories, the awards are open to console, mobile, social, casual, and online games at any stage of development with no restriction on genre, platform, or distribution method.

In terms of mobile and tablet gaming, the big winners were Danish studio Osao Games.

Its game Chronology picked up four trophies: gaining the Development Award and the European Games Booster in the Best Mobile/Tablet and Best Casual Game categories.

(The awards are structured that these two awards are given in each category, although in most cases, a single game won both.)
