Phew - what a night! Thanks to everyone who came along to the 2nd Annual Impy Awards, to help us celebrate all of our incredible nominees, and party with us on Dreams’ 1st birthday. Who knew a giant mechanical whale could move like that? Not us. And we made the thing that made it!
Don’t worry if you missed our puppet-powered, made-in-Dreams awards show – you can catch up with the rebroadcast right here(opens in new tab)
Quite apart from all the cake-eating and imp-shaking, however, there was the small matter of crowning this year’s winners. We’d like to say a huge thanks to our very special guest judges from around the industry, who helped us with the monumental task of picking a single winner in each category. The final shortlists were just a tiny slice of all the amazing stuff that’s happened in Dreams over the past 12 months. A big shout-out to everyone who’s been playing, creating and sharing their heart out this year.
But without further ado, here are the cherries on top, the crème de la crème - the winners of the 2nd Annual Impy Awards! You can read the full list via the banner below:
So much good stuff. If you fancy checking it out for yourself, you can simply boot up Dreams or download the free demo to explore our playlists of winners, nominees and honourable mentions. Oh, and our glitzy and glamorous Impys hub is still live in-game (we’ve had the imps clean it up since last night’s wild party, never fear) and you can browse all of this year’s winning entries, meet a few familiar faces and even sniff out some secret prizes. Here's a hint to get you started: try chatting to one of the puppets working in the gallery...
We hope you had as much of a blast as we did, and enjoyed some of our cheeky nods to the coMmunity. Thanks to everyone who tuned in and visited the hub, and to all those who went the extra mile to help us make this event really special. Let us know via the usual social channels what you thought about the changes we made this year based on your previous feedback. We’re already busy sorting through a bunch of ideas for the next show. (Did we hear ‘Mechawhale dance party’? No? Pretty sure we did…)
