While Ubisoft came out with a bajillion awards (that’s the exact number) at this year’s double-CVAs for games like Child of Light, Watch_Dogs, and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, another Canadian studio took home two awards in some pretty massive categories against stiff competition.
Toronto’s Vagabond Dog, creators of Always Sometimes Monsters, took home the awards for Best Writing as well as Best Indie Game, going up against Super Time Force, The Long Dark, and even big winners of the night Child of Light and Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.
The wins were unexpected and jokingly noted as “some sort of clerical error” by one of the studio co-founders Jake Reardon, who posted a photo of the two awards on Facebook.
Congratulations to the entire team at Vagabond Dog for two huge Canadian Videogame Awards wins!
None of this makes sense. You're all in error. We are not worthy. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/DHMQhswRf1
