The Game Awards Winners

If you aren’t aware, It Takes Two is a co-op action-adventure game developed by Hazelight and published by EA. It is specifically designed for split-screen cooperative multiplayer and sees players play as the couple Cody and May, two humans that have been turned into dolls by a magic spell. Trapped in a fantastical world, they’re put through challenges of saving their fractured relationship by the love guru Dr. Hakim.

It Takes Two took home the top prize of the Game of the Year award as well as the awards for Best Multiplayer and Best Family Game too.




Other games that took home multiple awards included Forza Horizon 5 for Best Sports/Racing, Best Audio Design, and Innovation in Accessibility. Deathloop, which had 9 nominations, ended up taking home 2 awards, and Kena: Bridge of Spirits won Best Indie and Best Indie Debut.
