According to the webpage
of the movie sequences' writer: "CHESS WARS: A Medieval Fantasy and Interactive Motion Picture written and directed by Paul W. Cooper. Art Data Interactive. Won, Best New Video Game, 1996.". It doesn't say who gave the award though. Also, the year listed conflicts with the year of publishing by WizardWorks
(1998), though 1996 may be when writing and filming was done.
Cancelled 3DO release
There was a rumor of a 3DO release or port at one point (not surprising considering Art Data
's other 3DO ports), but it was never released.
