Scottish Games Awards Winners Announced

The first-ever Scottish Games Awards has announced its long list of winners.

That’s a wrap! The Scottish Games Awards ceremonies have concluded, and we have the list of winners. A gala ceremony took place last night at Malmaison Dundee.

The awards ceremony was the climax of Scottish Games Week, which saw events take place all over the country in a bid to “showcase games as Scotland’s secret weapon in the tech sector.”

“It’s been a huge honour to chair the judging panel for the inaugural Scottish Games Awards,” said Chris Scullion, author of The NES Encyclopedia. “The quality of the nominees is a perfect indicator of the enormous degree of talent that can be found in the Scottish games industry.”

“Scotland has a world class reputation for games development as the winners of the first Scottish Games Awards have clearly demonstrated,” said Culture Secretary Angus Robertson.
