LostWinds wins Develop's 'Best New IP' award
We're delighted to report that LostWinds was awarded 'Best New IP' of the past 12 months at last night's Develop Games Industry Excellence Awards.
Thank you to all of our industry peers who voted for Toku and Enril's WiiWare adventure, and our congratulations and thanks go to all those at Frontier involved in the project for putting the power of the wind in the palms of our hands!
See Develop's article on the winners here for a picture of Steven Burgess, David Braben and John Laws picking up the award in their natty, hand-crafted Toku hats. Which, if we're lucky, may make another appearance for LostWinds' EIF screening on 11th August..
