What a party for German Indie Developer THREAKS! The arcade-adventure Beatbuddy wins Best Game Design and Best Serious Game at the German Developer Awards 2013. Both awards came as a big surprise for THREAKS since Beatbuddy was competing with titles like Crysis 3. The spontaneous reaction on stage was therefore a champagne frenzy instead of a well prepared speech. HERE are the pictures of the exciting evening.
The crazy concept behind Beatbuddy, to convert exclusive songs into playable action-adventure levels, already won awards before it’s release on STEAM this summer. The pre-alpha of the game received two Intel Level Up Awards during E3 2012 for Best Art and Best Sound.
After THREAKS recovered from the wild award-party in Düsseldorf, they are back in Hamburg working on ports for Beatbuddy. More news will follow in early 2014.
If you want to check out Beatbuddy on PC, Mac or Linux, now is the perfect timing! Beatbuddy is currently 75% OFF as part of the STEAM Christmas-Sale. Here are the links to the free DEMO and to the awesome soundtrack featuring exclusive songs from Parov Stelar and Austin Wintory.
