6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

Bit Blot's side-scrolling underwater action adventure, Aquaria, has been announced as the 2007 winner of Game Tunnel's Independent Game of the Year award. The award is given each year to the most outstanding Independent Video Game. The game also won in the graphics, sound, and adventure game categories.

The Independent Game of the Year awards have been established to honor ingenuity, innovation and excellence in Independent Games. This year's awards began December 11th with the Sports Game of the Year award and have continued through 3 weeks and 13 categories finishing with the Top 10 Independent Games of the Year and Aquaria taking the top spot.

Previously a winner at the Independent Games Festival, Aquaria's visual style captivated reviewers at Game Tunnel almost as much as the innovative gameplay. Featuring a spacious underwater world of striking beauty and haunting music, Aquaria is a unique experience that embodies all for which Independent Games are recognized.

"Independent Games are known for pushing the boundaries of gaming, providing an experience that is singular and different," said Russell Carroll, Editor-In-Chief at Game Tunnel. "We are excited every year for the opportunity to play these wonderfully original and inventive games and are happy to award winners in multiple categories to celebrate their achievements."
The Mac version of Aquaria is still in progress and will be released by Ambrosia Software. Follow the links below for more information.
