Titles across console, VR and mobile nominated for next year’s BAFTA Ones to Watch award

The winners of this year's Dare to be Digital game development competition have been chosen.

The winners of the competition, which challenges students around the world to develop a game prototype in just under eight weeks, were stealth action game Chambara by Overly Kinetic, second-screen action title Don’t Walk: Run by Torque and VR shooter Sagittarius by Too Mainstream.

The developers, who come from countries including China, India, Malta and the USA, have also been named as finalists for next year’s BAFTA Ones to Watch competition.

This year’s Channel 4 Award went to Don’t Walk: Run, giving the development team £25,000 to complete the title.

Attendees voted city destruction game World Eater by Taleforge for the Audience Award, while the Team Choice Award was presented to the Pillowettes.

The Artistic Achievement Award meanwhile went to tablet adventure game Seek by Five Pixels, and the Design in Action Award for Commercial Potential went to A Fox Wot I Drew for their touch-based mobile game Baum.
