As well as receiving finalist status directly, Etch Play are also thrilled to report that a huge number of our clients and business partners have received recognition - including household industry names such as Sumo DigitalSupermassive Games, and Bossa Games

In total, eighteen nominations have been received by Etch Play clientele, spanning categories such as Best Game, Technical Innovation, Recruitment, Best Studio, Original IP, Diversity Star and Tomorrow's Star. It's exceptional company to keep, and we're extremely proud of everyone we've worked with over the last 12 months for all of their myriad achievements. 

Further updates from Etch about our exciting work with other finalists are set to arrive in the near future.
