    Congratulations to all the winners - great to see a mix of studios across the board rather than domination by one or two.

    Even better to see two of the better performers as non-multinational locals, Sidhe and IR Gurus - Congrats!

    Sidhe and IR Gurus certainly have done well in the awards this year. Well done.

    I do have to say though, the Award for Best Original Character Design category should be dropped. There aren't many new titles released every year with original characters to warrant a category for it, otherwise TY would pretty much win it every darn year :/
