All Of The Winners From Today’s BAFTA Game Awards Including Some Huge Aussie Wins

This morning’s BAFTA Game Awards proved to be fruitful for several developers as the event celebrated all of the nominees and recipients with a host of awards for the very best 2021 had to offer in video games.

Among the winners were Aussie teams Witch Beam and Beethoven & Dinosaur, who took home awards for Unpacking and The Artful Escape, respectively.

With games like Inscryption, Unpacking, The Artful Escape, and Chicory winning big in several categories, it servers as further proof that 2021 was a great year for indies. It was also no surprise to see Returnal take out the award for Best Game, after we lavished it with similar praise in our end of year awards.
