    RocketBowl Wins IGF Award for Technical Excellence!

    RocketBowl recognized by the 7th Annual Independent Games Festival for excellence in technical execution.
    Winged ape storms stage to accept award!

    RocketBowl, the utopian-futuristic bowling game created by Large Animal Games, has received the 2005 Award for Technical Excellence as part of the Seventh Annual Independent Games Festival (IGF). Presented at the 2005 Game Developers Conference, this award honors the web/downloadable game that exhibits the best technical execution across multiple categories.

    This is the second time Large Animal has been an IGF finalist, and the first IGF award for the New York City-based developer. As Wade Tinney, Josh Welber, Brad MacDonald, Yossi Horowitz, Coray Seifert and Arthur Baczyk accepted the award, they thanked the Garage Games development community, and the many people who made this game possible. However, Baczyk had mysteriously disappeared, replaced last minute by a large gorilla with small wings.

    The IGF's Technical Excellence award recognizes the game with the best technical execution in the categories of Visual Arts, Audio, Game Design and Overall Game. For more information about the IGF Judging Process, click here.
