Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Wins 5 BAFTA Games Awards
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was the big winner Last Night at British Academy Games Awards, the UK’s annual BAFTA ceremony celebrating outstanding achievement in videogames. Hellblade claimed victory in five categories, including Artistic Achievement, Best Performer, and Best British Game—but the Best Game nod went to What Remains of Edith Finch.
During this event Ninja Theory quickly became the night’s big winner, claiming five categories which include Artistic Achievement, Audio Achievement, British Game, Game Beyond Entertainment and Best Performer. In total Ninja Theory won almost a third of the ceremony’s 16 game-specific awards.
At the event, Tim Schafer of Double Fine Entertainment also won one of BAFTA’s highest awards, a Fellowship, a “lifetime achievement” award. Previously this same award has been given to John Carmack, David Braben, Peter Molyneux, Gabe Newell and Rockstar Games (as an entity).
