Video game produced by Catalan studio wins 2019 Game Award for Impact
Nomada studio's 'GRIS' recognized with prestigious prize
Barcelona-based Nomada studio has won the 2019 Game Award for Impact for its 'GRIS' video game produced by illustrator Conrad Roset.
The studio was awarded the prestigious prize at a ceremony that took place in Los Angeles Thursday night local time.
According to the studio's website, "Gris is a hopeful young girl lost in her own world, dealing with a painful experience in her life. Her journey through sorrow is manifested in her dress, which grants new abilities to better navigate her faded reality."
As the player progresses through the game, Gris goes from seeing things in black and white to eventually being able to see colors.
The video game's soundtrack was produced by Barcelona band Berlinist.
Roger Mendoza and Adrián Cuevas, Nomada studio developers, thanked users for sharing "moving stories" with them when accepting the award, asking them to continue doing so.
