Big winners from the fourth annual TIGA Awards

TIGA

Earlier this week, Blitz Games CEO Philip Oliver picked up Best Player trophy at the fourth annual TIGA Awards ceremony, while the award for Best Developer went to Rebellion. Rebellion also got awards for Best Handheld or Console Game for their game Miami Vice.

Rebellion chief executive Jason Kingsley had this to say:

This year we’ve grown into one of the biggest independent studios in Europe with the integration of the famous Core Design and Strangelite studios, launched our second 2000 AD-based and double BAFTA-Nominated game Rogue Trooper, completed GUN: Showdown with Activision and most importantly Miami Vice with Vivendi, so it’s been a very exciting time to say the least.

Other awards handed out at the ceremony included Best Console and PC game, which got picked up by Revolution Studios for Broken Sword – Angel of Death. The Beset Mobile Game award went to Scottish developer Dynamo Games for Championship Manager 2006.

And just in case you didn’t know, TIGA is the trade association representing the business and commercial interests of games software developers in the UK and Europe. They’ve got about 113 members of which about 90 are developers. Most are independent, but a growing number are starting to get acquired and have become publisher-owned.

TIGA also has affiliate members who support and service the games industry. They’re mostly outsource and middleware companies such as QA and localization specialists (important for those oh so delicate translations), as well as law firms and accountants.
