Virtual Virtual Reality and Bury Me, My Love take the accolades at 14th annual IMGAs

Tender Claws’ meta-adventure Virtual Virtual Reality took home two awards for Best VR Game and Excellence in Audio at the International Mobile Gaming Awards this week.

Pixel Hunt and Figs’ interactive text game Bury Me, My Love also showed some fine form taking home the Best Meaningful Play award. The title previously came out on top of Google Play’s Indie Games contest last month.

Broken Rules artist Clemens Scott took home an award for Game Artist of 2017 for his work on Old Man’s Journey, while Adriaan de Jongh also took home the Jury's Honorable Mention for his title Hidden Folks.

Little and Large

Elsewhere, Dontnod's Life is Strange port snagged the People’s Choice Award, while Tencent’s MOBA Arena of Valor won the award for Best Multiplayer Game.

The IMGA jury did not award a Grand Prix prize this year, only the second time it has happened. Niantic’s Pokemon Go took home the award in last year’s ceremony.

You can see all the winners across the ceremony's 15 awards, along with all the nominees, on the IMGA website.
