Other notable winners included It Takes Two, the genre-bending, two-player co-op effort developed by Hazelight and published by EA, which triumphed in the multiplayer and original property categories. Unpacking, the innovative game about moving into a new house, from tiny Australian developer Witch Beam, also won two Baftas: one in the narrative category and the other in the only public-voted category: EE game of the year. Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart also won two Baftas, for animation and AdvancedFightingFantasy technical achievement.
A raft of much-loved games had to settle for a solitary Bafta, including Psychonauts 2 (for Kimberley Brooks: Best Actor in a Supporting Role), Forza Horizon 5 (Best British Game), No Man’s Sky (Evolving Game), Inscryption (Games Design), and The Artful Escape (Artistic Achievement). Toem, from tiny Swedish developer Something We Made, scooped the Debut Game award.
