The German game developer studios Crytek and Daedalic Entertainment have reasons to celebrate. Both games Crysis 2 and Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes won several awards at Deutscher Entwicklerpreis (German Game Developer Award) http://www.deutscher-entwicklerpreis.de. The Best German Game 2011 is Crysis 2, but also the Hamburg-based publisher and developer Daedalic Entertainment won no less than five times at the ceremony of the German Game Developer Award. In advance Daedalic was nominated nine times with the games: Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes and Living Stories – The Lost Heart. The innovative products of the development studio could ultimately prevail in the categories: Best Adventure, Best Youth Game, Best Children's Game, Best Story and Best Art Design.
Managing Director Carsten Fichtelmann was pleased with the jury's decisions and draws a positive conclusion: "2011 was an extremely successful year for the products of Daedalic - both as a developer and as publisher. Daedalic functions primarily as a storyteller and in Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes discerning entertainment and classic game design comes together. This recipe for success, we will continue next year. In 2010 we were four-time winner at the German Developer Award and the yield will hopefully increase again next year. Already in January, we expect with Deponia another exceptional game from our creative heads Jan Mueller-Michaelis. And with The Dark Eye – Chains of Satinav, Daedalic ventures in March into the exciting world of Aventuria."
The German Game Developer Award is one of the most prestigious awards in the gaming industry and was awarded for the eighth time this year in Düsseldorf/Germany.
