Untitled Goose Game won the game of the year award at the Dice Awards, the awards given by The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.


The friendly goose of Untitled Goose Game must have made one of his stunts. He stole the game of the year award during the Dice Awards and seems to have no intention of returning it.

During yesterday’s event, the developer House House and publisher Panic were surprised by this prestigious award. The Dice Awards, in fact, are awarded by The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences, a nonprofit association dedicated to interactive arts.

The likable (or unpleasant, depends on the point of view) goose has become a real custom phenomenon. They merged it with Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot or they created a small program thanks to which it messes up the desktop of our PCs. But from here to win such a prestigious prize we pass. Also because, in addition to the game of the year, Untitled Goose Game has won two other awards: Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game and Outstanding Achievement in Character.

The other awards went to Control which brought home 4 of the 23 awards available and Death Stranding with 2. Sayonara Wild Hearts is the best portable game, Mortal Kombat 11 best fighting game, Pistol Whip is the most immersive game, FIFA 20 is the sports game of the year.

The Outer Worlds was honored as the best role-playing game of 2019, while Disco Elysium was awarded the prize for the best story. The ceremony was conducted for the fourth time by Greg Miller, podcast host Kinda Funny, and Jessica Chobot.
