The BAFTA Games Awards 2014 has been and gone and the results are in.
Hit Playstation Vita title Tearaway walked away with no-less than three separate awards after coming out on top in the 'Artistic Achievement', 'Mobile & Handheld', and 'Family' categories.
Tearaway is an innovative platformer released way back in November 2013 in which either a male or female character, Iota or Atoi respectively, must deliver a message that's stored inside their envelope-shaped head to the player, referred to as "the You".
The entire world is a fantastic work of art with the environment, objects, and characters having the appearance of being constructed from papercraft.
The game also applaudingly uses all of the PS Vita's system features, including the camera, touch screen, and touch pad, to good effect.
Other mobile game nominations at this year's BAFTAs included BADLAND, DEVICE 6, Plants Vs. Zombies 2, Ridiculous Fishing, Year Walk, Size DOES Matter, and The Room Two.
