Age of Wonders III wins big at The Dutch Game Awards

Wow! Age of Wonders III won best PC / Console game and the Control Industry Award. That last award was won as a result from votes from the Dutch games industry community. Thanks everybody, this means a lot to us!

The Dutch Games industry is bigger than you might think.  Killzone is made by Guerrilla Games in Amsterdam. Nixxes is behind the tech of many Square Enix such as Tomb Raider. Vlambeer makes fantastic arcade like games such as LuftRausers and Ridiculous Fishing.  Reus is a break out indie hit by Abbey Games and there is much, much more.

    I’ll translate it a bit better than Google Translate can (GT messes up some details):

    Age of Wonders 3 winner of Dutch Game Awards

    The best Dutch game of 2014 is Triumph Studios’ Age of Wonders 3. The game won the award on Tuesday evening during the Dutch Game Awards in TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht.

    The studio from Leiden (nu.nl got this wrong, it’s kind of a sloppy website in the details) received the Control Industry Award, the overall award for the best pc / consolegame.

    Other winners were among others Game Over, which together with the National Ballet and composer Bart Delissen won the award for best co-production for the dancing game Bounden. Check In, Knock Out, made by students from HKU under the name Lionade Games, won two out of three study-related awards.

    According to judge member and editor in chief of games journal Control Eric Bartelson, the level of submissions was high this year. “In a lot of categories the discussions took more time than usual. It is no longer the case that one good game can easily collect three to four awards. The competition has grown too fierce for that.”

    Thanks 🙂

    Indeed some fierce competition, Killzone is created by Guerrilla Games, our biggest Dutch Game Studio. Tombraider isn’t actually created by a dutch studio (Nixxes), but it being ported by them to the PS4. Still a great technical achievement. Other recent successful Dutch games are Luftrausers by Vlambeer and Reus by Abbey Games (winner last year).

    Congratulations, very well deserved.

    On that pic on the triumph twitter, the two guys on the left should be Narvek and Lennart, on the right probably Arno van Wingerden, but who are the other two?

    Is the one with the red trousers Arnout Sas?

    And why do we never get to see Sikbok on those pictures 🙂
