2014 Canadian Videogame Awards Finalists Announced

By   /   Nov 11, 2014

Finalists for the 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards have been announced. There are seventeen categories that will be lauded in total.

Of course, the Canadian Videogame Awards are built on a focus for Canadian-made titles. Canada is the third largest provider of games in the industry, which yields both indie titles and blockbuster releases.

It may be a little harder for smaller games to receive an award though, given the bigger laureates. For instance, we’ll mark all candidates for the Game of the Year spot:

  • Chariot (Frima)
  • Child of Light (Ubisoft)
  • Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies  (Relic Entertainment)
  • Eets Munchies (Klei Entertainment)
  • Hitman GO (Square Enix)
  • Pixel Garden (Oooweeooo)
  • Super Time Force (Capybara Games)
  • Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past (Glitchsoft)
  • Warhammer 40,000: Carnage (Roadhouse Interactive)
  • Watch_Dogs (Ubisoft)

An interesting deviation in the event is that nominees feature unfinished games. For instance, The Long Dark is noted in several segments, despite the fact that it’s still on Steam via Early Access.

Other frequently recurring titles in the awards sections include Always Sometimes Monsters from publisher Devolver Digital, Super Time Force and Hitman GO. In fact, there are only 28 games listed, which may sound a bit compressed, given the many categories.

The 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards will be held in Toronto on November 21, 2014. It’s the fifth time that the ceremony is held.

You’ll be able to tune in to the Canadian Videogame Awards live through Twitch. Games from 2013 will be represented as well.
