Things Sounding Good for God of War – BAFTA Game Nominations 2019

The BAFTA Games Awards 2019 nominations were released this morning at 11am over Twitch and Twitter Live Stream.

The ceremony, hosted by Dara O’Briain, takes place on Thursday 4 April at the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s Southbank and will be live streamed on all major social, online and gaming platforms: www.bafta.org/games/howtowatch.

The last year has seen some incredible games on our screens and more importantly, brought to our ears. It’s always exciting to hear new game music across many different genres from the big budget orchestral scores to new and innovative indie game soundtracks. Performers go from strength to strength, bringing us fresh characters, with depth and emotion. Of course there is the sought after Audio Achievement, heralding the hard work of the often hidden audio teams, behind studio doors and in dark and quiet rooms. Best of luck to everybody nominated.

That’s 6 incredible nominations for the God of War team, across every audio category. We’re also really pleased to see some smaller titles such as Florence, GRIS and Celeste getting the recognition they deserve and balancing out the table. It shows it really doesn’t matter what the size of your production team is, you can strive to be the best and be creative, whether you are a lone composer, working away in your studio, or a team of sound designers and programmers bouncing off each other at the office.
