Imagination Gaming have announced the results of their 5th annual, global, hobby game awards competition, with Esdevium picking up 14 awards for their titles!
Created by Nigel Scarfe and Chris Standley, the ‘Imagination Gaming Game Awards’ seek out new games from around the world that engage children and families alike whilst helping to promote basic social and curriculum based life skills.
The games considered, whilst primarily engaging and fun, are not necessarily designed for education, but always require participants to demonstrate a range of fundamental skills and understanding.
Solely funded by Imagination Gaming and independently assessed by panels of experienced educational professionals and family game enthusiasts, the awards now cover 10 specific categories to recognise the benefits all ages can get from combining learning, fun and education.
This year, Imagination Gaming’s biggest new award was the BIGGY (Best Imagination Gaming Game of the Year) Award. All games submitted into the 2017 awards were in the running and only one of the submissions received claimed this award. Unlock! was awarded the BIGGY this year due to being that little bit ‘different’; a game which proved popular, not only with the judging panel, but with Imagination Gaming themselves, and their ability to use the game in a variety of sessions and educational activities.
Esdevium is extremely proud of the following games, which won awards in this year’s Imagination Gaming Awards:
