On November 2nd video game industry professionals congregated in London at the V&A Museum for the TIGA Game Industry Awards 2017. Celebrating all kinds of video games, their creators and others who work within, predominantly, the UK video game industry.

Since the awards began in 2012, TIGA has recognised many video games which have since become well-known and well-respected such as Little Big Planet (Game of the Year 2012), Forza Horizon (Best Debut Game 2013) and Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture (Creative UK Gameplay Award 2015) and this year was no different! Sadly, we couldn’t be there to enjoy the festivities but here is a rundown of the winners who were dubbed “Best” in their category in all things video games!

Wastelands' thrilling finale means it's a step up from Rules, but it makes a few missteps in its handling of the brothers’ relationship to get there.
Emma Spalding

It all began with the Atari ST. Then the first home PC. And the rest is history. Although a platformer and RPG lass at heart, I'm willing to give anything a go, and if a game looks quirky then you've got my attention!
