GameCity, a prominent UK videogame festival, recently unveiled the GameCity Prize, a new type of videogame award meant to honor a game that most significantly pushes the artistic limits for what they call “one of the most significant cultural forms of our age.”
The winner will be judged by a panel consisting of artists and other prominent public figures, including the Artistic Director of the Southbank Centre, a member of Parliament, one of the actors on Doctor Who, and the drummer from Blur.
The finalists are:
- Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP
- Pokémon Black
- Portal 2
- Child of Eden
As advocates of thinking about games in a different, more artistic light, we couldn’t be more excited.
