Last year’s Hades was a godsend for fans of indie gaming, good storytelling in games, and action titles in general. So it’s no surprise that Supergiant’s Hades won big at this year’s prestigious BAFTA Games Awards ceremony. The BAFTAs, or the British Academy Film Awards, is a pretty big deal for the entertainment industry, and happen to be one of the few legitimate game awards shows that isn’t reliant on exclusive game trailers to stay relevant.

- Best Game, Artistic Achievement,
- Game Design,
- Performer in a Supporting Role (Logan Cunningham who voiced the title character).
