Awards season is still happening, and while most of the world has been busy talking way, way, WAY too much about one man slapping another on public television, the actual award shows — you know, the things that are meant to honor the artistic achievements of people in various industries — are still ongoing. Such is the case with the BAFTAs, which went down last night to give video game developers the highest honors British people can offer.

The Artful Escape won the prestigious, fancy-sounding Artistic Achievement award, while Toem achieved for Best Debut and Chicory: A Colorful Tale  nabbed Best Family Game. The notable winner in the indie space was perhaps Unpacking, which not only one the esteemed Best Narrative award but also the EE Game of the Year, aka the one voted for by the audience. It overtook both Chicory and Metroid Dread for the honor. It was the only nomination Dread achieved, and in fact the only other Nintendo game to get any nom was Mario Party Superstars for Best Family Game.
