At this year’s gamescon conference held in Germany, SimCity won with the Best PC Game of the Show award.
‚”With this charming revised version, the developers have struck the right balance between retaining the trademarks of the old parts and making it interesting for beginners. Fantastic graphics, very easy to get into and from the first moment that feeling of having the right game in your hands.‚”
About the awards:
They are the most coveted prizes in the European games industry and an accolade for outstanding software and hardware: the gamescom awards. Last week, more than 275,000 visitors to Cologne experienced the spectacular innovations presented at gamescom 2012. Among them were the 20 international jurors and experts from the world’s leading games media who made up the jury for the gamescom awards 2012. It was this jury that picked out the winners of the awards for this year’s best games and hardware from more than 100 entries.
The studio team is incredibly proud to have won this award. Here’s what Lucy Bradshaw, GM of Maxis Label, had to say: ‚”Following on from an amazing showing at E3, where SimCity garnered 17 awards frompress outlets around the world, we went into gamescom 2012 with a real sense of anticipation. This was the first time that we had let anyone have hands on our game and the gamescom judges clearly enjoyed and appreciated the experience. I couldn’t be prouder of the studio team in Emeryville. SimCity is one to watch!‚”
We will be talking to you very soon about more opportunities to get hands on with the hottest simulation game of the year. If you need any more information, or just want to chat about city building, please get in touch.
