The ‘5th Gamelab National Awards for the Video-Game Industry’ will be held on June 28, and, once again, Zinkia has garnered five nominations. I say again because, in 2008, Zinkia already won the prize for ‘Best Video-Game Company‘.
These awards are organized every year by the Spanish Academy of Interactive Arts and Science (www.interactivas.org) and represent the highest honor for companies and professionals in the Spanish video-game sector, in recognition of the best work in the previous 12 months.
This time around, ‘Pocoyo Racing’, our latest release, is up for awards in the following categories: Best Game of the Year: Best Console Game; Best Handheld Console Game; and Best Animation. These nominations make it the fourth leading video-game by number of nominations in this year’s awards.
In addition to these four categories, ‘Pocoyo Racing’ is also in the running, alongside 74 other titles, for the Public’s Special Prize, voted for by users who cast their votes via the Festival’s web and Facebook page.
