    The demo didn't impress me very much to be honest. It's kinda like Samorost (no inventory) but extremely linear, you're literally moving from one puzzle room to the next. And the puzzles - at least in the demo - aren't terribly challenging. Animations are nice though.

    So nobody seems to have bothered to check the results last week, but they are actually kinda fine. Whispers of a Machine, Outer Wilds and Gibbous won most stuff (congrats, Mr. Underhill!), Disco won something (but thankfully not as much as I feared).

    Highlights:
    Best Story: Whispers of a Machine (staff&readers);
    Best Writing - Comedy: Hypnospace Outlaw (staff) / Gibbous (readers);
    Best Writing - Drama: Life Is Strange 2 (staff) / Whispers of a Machine (readers);
    Best Character: Kitteh (Yay! though only in readers' choice);
    Best Gameplay: Outer Wilds (staff) / Whispers of a Machine (readers);
    Best Concept: Disco (whatever);

    Best Traditional: Whispers of a Machine;
    Best Non-traditional: Outer Wilds (staff) / Disco (readers);
    Best Adventure: Outer Wilds (staff) / Whispers of a Machine (readers);

    Gibbous and whisper deserved all the praise it can get.

    Love them both.
