Osmotic Studios wins two game awards for Orwell in the same week

After receiving six award nominations for Orwell since it’s launch in October last year, this week saw Osmotic Studios win not just one, but two, prestigious game awards within days of each other.

The week started with the German Computer Games Awards on April 26, one of the most important and high profile events of Berlin Games Week. Nominated for the “Best Serious Game” Award, Orwell won the trophy alongside Spiderwork Games’ educational Debugger 3.16: Hack’n’Run.

Already thrilled to have won their first award, Daniel, Micha and Mel only needed to wait a matter of days before netting a second.

Held from April 26-29, A MAZE. is a German independent games and playful media festival established in 2008. The Awards were held on April 28, and judged by an international jury. Put forward as an AMAZE. Awards finalist, Orwell was the winner of the ‘Long Feature Award’, capping off an incredible week for the ecstatic developers.

As the publisher of Orwell, we are incredibly proud of Osmotic Studios. With international nominations that include “Games for Impact” at The Game Awards, “Best Indie Game” at the NY Games Awards, an IGF nomination for “Excellence in Narrative”, and now two wins, Orwell continues to prove itself, and showcase Osmotic Studios’ passion to tell a story of great social implication.
