Brutal Legend faces smorgasbord of awards

News posted by Ryan on February 16th, 2010 at 10:37am GMT

If you love Brutal Legend, you’d better be hoping it wins the bunch of Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences award nominations it’s up for next week! As Double Fine Action News points out, the game’s in the running for the following:

  • Outstanding Achievement in Original Story
  • Outstanding Achievement in Soundtrack
  • Outstanding Character Performance (Eddie Riggs)
  • Strategy/Simulation Game of the Year

Yeah! And if that wasn’t enough, it’s also up for the ‘Best Audio’ and ‘Best Writing’ Game Developers Choice Awards, and a BAFTA award for ‘Story’.

Wish Double Fine luck! I mean they shouldn’t need it, but you know how gamers are with their Modern Battlefield 2 and Uncrafted 2.

Update
