And the Roger goes to…

Even though Dr. Zaiss and the esteemed Mr. Gnome have already started commenting…

rog.PNGThe AGS Award winners were announced yesterday in a fun IRC ceremony which I was able to attend (at 5 AM Monday Morning!!!). And it was a good day for Linus and Spooks.

Spooks picked up an award for Best Player Character and another one for Best Music. Erin also got in the best acceptance speech of the night:

[20:20] And the winner is:
[20:20] <AGA> Mortia, from Spooks
[20:21] <AGA> Say something, The_Ivy_!
[20:21] <The_Ivy_> thank you!
[20:21] <AGA> Say something interesting, The_Ivy_!
[20:21] <The_Ivy_> So glad I went and bought a new dress for this occasion

Congrats to Erin and Chris for taking home those awards!

Linus also had a good night, snagging the award for Best Scripting and the award for Best Innovation! The innovation award was a new one this year and was selected by a committee rather than the usual community nomination/voting process. I’m particularly happy about that one!

Also, during the ceremony, someone mentioned that Linus had a small article in the UK (and maybe the US) PC Gamer magazine’s January issue. So, if anyone has that mag and a scanner… help a bro out!

    Congratulations! Is it really called the Roger?

    Some people jokingly call it the Roger after Roger Wilco from Space Quest who is also the ubiquitous default sprite included with the AGS engine.

    Heh, not sure about best speech of the night, but thanks. :-, I liked how Chris referred to us as “Team The Ivy” on the forums. Go team!
