Best Comedy
Gaming is all about entertainment and this category focuses on the lighter side of life, humour. The nominees for the Funniest Game Award are titles that made us smirk and titter, tickled our funny bones or just kept us smiling the whole way through whatever fantastical nonsense the game presented. Humour can be found in the strangest of places sometimes, and it takes an excellent writer to create a genuinely amusing game. We are looking for vibrant amusing characters or a witty script and story that works within the boundaries of the genre.
Proof perfect that comedy can practically carry a game provided it’s funny enough, Pit People is a hilarious turn-based strategy game that delivers a blast of visual gags, witty puns, and a Saturday morning cartoon vibe that belies a massively in-depth co-op adventure.
