The great Daydream & Gear VR title WANDS wins Best VR Game at the International Mobile Gaming Awards.
The team behind Wands® announced that it has been awarded for Best VR Game in the 13th International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGA Global). The IMGA is the longest standing and highest regarded mobile games award program started in 2004.
Held during gaming week in San Francisco, the 13th IMGA ceremony was presented by the Australian host Maude Garrett at Minna Gallery. An exclusive after-party hosted by Youzu followed the event.
“We are delighted to be awarded Best VR Game by IMGA. We are passionate about VR, and Wands is our first VR game to be released. So for us, this is a sensational start and we feel very positive about our future in this incredible industry,” Lisa Le Gresley, CEO.
“Winners like Wands highlight the new standard of creativity and the emerging quality of the productions found in mobile gaming”, said Maarten Noyons, founder of the IMGA. “Out of more than 3000 total submissions, Wand’s game was one of the few to rise to the top of the prominent list of jury’s best experiences in its category. Our 16 winners helped to make this a top year in terms of technology, substance, art and exploration in mobile games”
Wands® is a truly immersive and stunning game where players enter their own workshop and prepare for battle, choosing from a range of magical spells. Once equipped and ready to battle, the next port is into The Beyond where anything can happen and there are no limits. The Beyond is a place filled with mysterious spells, abstract relics and immoral wielders. Magic is forbidden in The Beyond so masks are obligatory to protect the player’s identities from the legal enforcers. Wands® is a multiplayer game and is the first game released by Multivrses, the Stockholm based studios.
