GAMBIT director Philip Tan announced the great news over the weekend:
Congratulations to ZZZ Games! The 2010 GAMBIT summer team was responsible for developing Symon, which just won the Kongregate Award for Best Browser Game at the Indie Game Challenge, part of the D.I.C.E. Summit in Las Vegas. Kyle Orland from Gamasutra reported from the award ceremony, “Kongregate’s Jim Greer came on stage during the ceremony to present a special award to Symon, a procedurally generated puzzle game set in the dreams of a paralyzed man. The award comes with prominent placement on the Flash game portal and one million sponsored views provided by the site.”
We covered Symon in Game of the Week recently, so be sure to check out how the game was conceived and brought to life. Of course, you can play the game on our website, and stay tuned for more news about Symon in the coming months… we haven’t let it lie fallow!
