UKIE’s UK Game of the Show returns for Gamescom 2016

The award highlighting the best UK title at Gamescom is returning for its fourth year.

Handed out at UKIE’s stand at the show, which this year sports a ‘Great British Tea Party’ theme, this prize recognises the best UK-developed, but not yet released, project at Gamescom.

Anonymous judges will be looking at British games at the show for the first two days, before a prize is awarded at UKIE’s stand during the trade body’s evening drinks reception on Thursday.

In 2015,the UK Game of Show prize went to Gunnihilation, developed by Robo Pixel Games.

This year, the award is sponsored by Cubic Motion.

We’re delighted to have Cubic Motion supporting the award and look forward to seeing the brilliant talent being shown at this year’s show.”

Cubic Motion chairman Andy Wood added: We’re thrilled to support the UK Game of the Show Award at Gamescom. The award is a great way to celebrate brilliant games that haven’t been released yet, and champion the high quality of content being produced by British games companies to an international audience. We can’t wait to see the games.”
