We’ve had some great news this week as Dark Future: Blood Red States has been shortlisted for TIGA's Heritage Award!

We’re really excited to be up for the award alongside some other great titles - check out the the full shortlist for the awards. A lot of passion and hard work has gone into making Dark Future: Blood Red States so we’re excited to celebrate this.

TIGA awards

The TIGA awards, run by The Independent Game Developers' Association, are designed to recognise the achievements of studios, businesses, and universities across the games sector.

We’ve been shortlisted for The Heritage Award which recognises a game that reflects British creativity, subject matter, and heritage. Dark Future: Blood Red States is a great fit for this as it’s an adaptation of legendary British tabletop company Games Workshop’s 1988 cult classic Dark Future, the reboot being made by our friendly little British studio Auroch Digital.

Its narrative framing and visual design has inspirations within it from everything from the bleakly humourous British sci-fi comics of the ‘80s, to the BBC’s now defunct Ceefax service. You can find out more about this in our podcast with several episodes about the development and creation of Dark Future.

The Dark Future Needs You!

How can you get involved, I hear you ask? You can vote for Dark Future as Game of the Year! All the video games within the Games Category shortlists for The TIGA awards are automatically finalists for the Game of the Year.

You can head on over here to vote but make sure you do it before midnight on 18th October! It would mean a lot to us to get your vote as Dark Future has been a labour of love for everyone here at Auroch Digital. Once you’ve voted, please do share this and as other Sanctioned Ops to share too! Together the future’s not bright, it’s dark.

Keep your fingers crossed for us and pop on over to our lovely little Discord to chat all things gaming and Dark Future.
