The alternative Game BAFTAs get sponsored!

We are delighted and all warm inside to announce that the nice people at Deep Silver, Koch Media's Premium Publishing label, are the proud sponsors of this years event.

Thanks to a kind sponsorship offer this year’s awards are to become: The Rodent Game Awards 2008– Sponsored by Deep Silver.

Stephanie Baker of Deep Silver comments:“…The Rodent chaps play and love videogames– as the industry becomes ever more sophisticated and more deeply commercial, we thought it was worth celebrating the joy of actually playing and loving videogames.”

The event is to be held TONIGHT, Thursday the 31st of January 2008, in a London pub and to celebrate Deep Silver’s sponsorship we have been able to release a handful of extra tickets. They’ll go quicker than, I dunno, Hot Coffee so blag yourself a couple from here:
