Ground Control wins an EMMA
Sweden's Massive Entertainment pick up the "best strategy game" gong at the EMMAs
Swedish developers Massive Entertainment added another trophy to their cabinet this week, winning in the "best strategy game" category at the recent EMMA Awards in Holland. The EMMAs are intended to "recognise excellence in digital media content creation", and Massive's stunning 3D real-time strategy game "Ground Control" was perhaps the obvious choice, with the jury apparently picking out the game for its "great interface, impressive 3D graphics and good lighting effects, as well as for its fantastic ability to zoom in and out of the action". There's also a rather good game under all that eye candy, but it seems they weren't too interested in that.
