Bastion Wins Big at the Spike VGAs, Inside Gaming Awards

By Greg Kasavin December 12 2011

Our team is back from an exciting whirlwind weekend in Los Angeles where Bastion racked up three wins at the Inside Gaming Awards, followed by three wins at the Spike Video Game Awards! Check out our photos from the events, and here's a summary of damage dealt:

At the Spike VGAs, Bastion earned Best Downloadable Game, Best Original Score, and Best Song in a Game for Build That Wall (Zia's Theme). Watch the Spike VGA pre-show segment in which Darren Korb and I accepted the awards on behalf of the team.

At the Inside Gaming Awards, Bastion earned Best Downloadable Game, Best Indie Game, and Best Original Score.

We owe a great big thank-you and congratulations to Ashley Barrett, who sings "Build That Wall", for her outstanding performance that's made such an impact on so many listeners!

And of course, thanks again to the judges of the respective awards for their recognition of our game, as well as to our families and friends for their love and patience all through development. Thanks as well to the team at Warner Bros. for their support, and to all our players out there for taking a chance on a game from a small, unproven studio.

We ain't resting on our laurels, either. We're releasing the Stranger's Dream DLC for Bastion later this week while keeping a close eye on the launch of our new Chrome version of Bastion, which has been getting a tremendous response. Lots of exciting plans for the future, too!
