D.I.C.E. Honors Untitled Goose Game as Game of the Year
The votes are in and a fan-favorite indie game is ruling the roost at the 23rd D.I.C.E. (Design, Innovate, Communicate, Entertain) Awards. Hosted by The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, this year’s Game of the Year was awarded to Untitled Goose Game from indie developer House House and publisher Panic, in which players take the reins of the titular goose to manipulate and torment the inhabitants of a proper little English village.
Last night, the Academy membership honored games in 23 award categories. Control led the evening with four awards, Game of the Year winner Untitled Goose Game had three wins, and Death Stranding nabbed two. Other top honorees include Sayonara Wild Hearts for Portable Game of the Year; Mortal Kombat 11 for Fighting Game of the Year; Pistol Whip for Immersive Game of the Year; FIFA 20 for Sports Game of the Year; The Outer Worlds for Role-Playing Game of the Year; and Disco Elysium for Outstanding Achievement in Story, among others.
