Janaury 17, 2013 Each year, the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences awards the best artistic achievements in videogames at the D.I.C.E. Summit. Housemarque, Finland’s oldest game studio, is proud to announce that RESOGUN, the exclusive and critically acclaimed PS4 shooter, has been nominated in the category Action Game of the Year along with other heavy hitters such as Battlefield 4, DmC, Bioshock Infinite and Dead Rising 3.
“It’s a great honor to be nominated, especially in the same year when Eugene Jarvis will be given the Pioneer Award. Without his work on Defender, RESOGUN wouldn’t exist and Housemarque could have gone in a very different direction”, commented Ilari Kuittinen, Housemarque’s CEO. “Back in the days this genre was all the rage, and we are commited to carry on the legacy of Jarvis and other arcade pioneers like him.”
More than 22 000 members are voting on behalf of the Academy, and prizes will be awarded February the 6th in Las Vegas, NV.
RESOGUN currently enjoys an average of 84 on Metacritic and additional content for the game is scheduled for release later this year.
