Dontnod Entertainment celebrated a double victory at last night’s Develop Awards.
The French studio received the gongs for both New IP – PC/Console and Use of Narrative for its episodic adventure Life is Strange.
The team thanked their writers and all the players that have supported them, as well as its publisher Square Enix, which notably released the game without making any changes. Most other publishers demanded Dontnod switched to a male protagonist.
Dontnod draws level with UK studio Creative Assembly, which picked up two awards for Alien: Isloation – Use of a Licence or IP and Audio Accomplishment. The sci-fi hit also won a third award thanks to Creative Outsourcer: Audio winner Side.
