SIDE UK was awarded Best Creative Provider at the 2020 Develop: Star Awards, held this year online during Develop: Brighton Digital.
The award recognises the organisation that has provided exceptional audio assets (in this case: voice performance) or visual assets to the game developer community. Judges looked for innovation, creativity, excellence in service levels, delivery on brief and resulting critical and/or commercial success for the client.
SIDE UK featured their work on A Plague Tale: Innocence, Asobo Studio’s much lauded action-adventure horror stealth game, published by Focus Home Interactive. SIDE UK worked closely with the developer to bring a 14th-century France under siege by plague-ridden rats to life; from casting child actors to voice the young lead characters to fine-tuning the accent used by the cast. SIDE helped the extremely talented actors navigate an epic yet intimate story and all were delighted to see their work translate into a gaming experience that connected the player to the plight of a group of young innocents in such a vivid and exciting world.
Given out on 4th November, the Develop: Star Awards 2020 recognise the very best games and talent within the interactive entertainment industry.
