The mythological epic leads a diverse slate of winners as Return of the Obra Dinn and Nintendo Labo pick up two awards each
The Bafta games awards are always slightly different from the institute’s TV and film evenings. Instead of glitzy celebrities, there are endearingly earnest speeches from the developers, artists, musicians, designers and performers behind the year’s most creatively accomplished video games.
The awards went to a diverse range of games, but one dominated the evening. Sony Santa Monica’s mythological epic God of War won five awards overall, having been nominated in 10 categories, including best game. The atmospheric nautical mystery Return of the Obra Dinn and the wildly creative Nintendo Labo took two honours each.
