LostWinds wins IGN's "Best of 2008" award for 'Best Use of Wii-Mote'
We are very pleased to announce that IGN named LostWinds the winner of the 'Best Use of WiiMote' category in IGN's "Best of 2008" end of year awards.
"Truly unique in design, the game's ability to conduct the power of wind to control the player [character] is a concept we were instantly hooked on, and sits atop a list of impressive IR offerings on the system. LostWinds isn't just an adventure/platformer with the Wii-mote functionality tacked on; this game is made possible with the Wii remote."
The other nominees were:
- Call of Duty: World at War
- Boom Blox
- Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 All-Play
LostWinds was also nominated in several other categories in the IGN awards, both Wii-specific and across all platofrms; click here for a listing.
