We’re incredibly honoured to share that Sackboy: A Big Adventure has been awarded two BAFTA’s at the 2021 BAFTA Game Awards!

The game picked up the awards for Family Game and British Game, along with nominations in the Multiplayer and Music categories.

Since the release of Sackboy: A Big Adventure in November 2020, the support and love we’ve received from players across the world has been overwhelming. We are proud to see the hard work of the Sumo Digital development teams in Sheffield and Pune being recognised and are grateful for our partnership with the team at Sony XDev, who have supported us every step of the way.

“It’s been a privilege to work alongside such a talented and dedicated group of people,” said Ned Waterhouse, Design Director at Sumo Sheffield. “Shipping a game is never easy. Shipping a game in 2020 was its own unique challenge and our team rose to that challenge.

“To everyone who went out, bought a copy of the game and joined Sackboy on his latest adventure; thank you. We really appreciate the support.”

Winning a BAFTA is a dream come true and winning TWO is something we could hardly dare to imagine! You can watch Design Director Ned Waterhouse's award acceptance speech here on Twitter, and check out Art Director Joel Smith's below.

Thank you to everyone that helped to bring Sackboy: A Big Adventure to life, and to our players for joining us on this journey!
