Inside cleans up at 2017 BAFTAs as Uncharted 4 takes the top honor

April 6, 2017 | By Alex Wawro




The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (you know, BAFTA) held its annual British Academy Games Awards gala in London today, and it was Playdead's atmospheric hit Inside that earned the most recognition (four awards) while Naughty Dog went home with the "Best Game" award for its own Uncharted 4

It was a high-profile opportunity for devs to be recognized for their work, among them veteran game designer Brenda Romero, who accepted the BAFTA Special Award in recognition of her illustrious and ongoing contributions to the field of game development.

Campo Santo's Firewatch and Ghost Town Games' Overcooked also earned a notable bit of recognition today, netting a pair of BAFTA awards apiece. We've taken the liberty of reprinting the full list of this year's BAFTA award winners below; you can also head over to the BAFTA Games Twitter account for some photos and video clips posted live from the awards show.
