‘Hades’ is Game of the Year at Game Developers Choice Awards 2021


Hades continued its unstoppable awards-sweeping run after being awarded Game of the Year at this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards (GDCA).

Coinciding with this year’s all-digital Game Developers Conference (GDC), the awards were also an online affair streamed via Twitch on July 21.

Besides taking the top prize, Hades also won awards in Best Audio and Best Design. This further adds to Supergiant Games‘ mantelpiece. The roguelike has already snapped up the highest honours at the D.I.C.E. Awards, the SWSX Gaming Awards, the BAFTA Game Awards, and the inaugural Gayming Awards.


The rest of the awards were more evenly spread. However, Ghost Of Tsushima also bagged multiple awards, winning for Best Visual Design and the Audience Award, the latter voted by the public.

Special awards were also reserved for individuals. Tom Fulp picked up the Pioneer Awards in recognition of his role as the founder of entertainment site Newgrounds and his role in the evolution of Flash games.
