It has happened -- that pesky goose has gone and won itself a Game of the Year award, justifying all of its actions and mischief in the process! That's right, Untitled Goose Game was the surprise recipient of the D.I.C.E. Awards' top gong last night as it crowned and celebrated what was best in video games for the year of 2019.
The game also took first place in the Outstanding Achievement in Character and Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game categories, but it was the Game of the Year award which surprised the developer the most. House House took to Twitter to say: "This is such an incredible, surreal honour. We regrettably couldn't make it to D.I.C.E. in person, and we had a hard time recording an acceptance video because (looking at the other nominees) it was impossible to imagine actually winning. We're blown away."
Untitled Goose Game joins the ranks of winners which includes Sony's God of War, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Overwatch, Fallout 4, and Dragon Age: Inquisition. The D.I.C.E Awards are put together and voted on by video game industry professionals, so you can understand how prestigious of an award Game of the Year quickly becomes.
