British Academy to recognise growing development sector
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts will recognise social gaming with a new category for next year’s awards.
BAFTA has added the new Social Network Game category to its upcoming GAME British Academy Video Games Awards, to be presented in 2011.
The category will specifically be for social network games, such as Zynga’s FarmVille available on Facebook.
The academy, which has celebrated the video game industry since the nineties, has become one of the first major awards-bodies to recognise social gaming.
