OMDC-Supported Game | Drinkbox Studios’ Severed Won the 2017 Apple Design Award

Congratulations to Toronto-based, Drinkbox Studios, on their game Severed as it was named winner of the 2017 Apple Design Award. Severed is a critically acclaimed, narrative-driven adventure game which has been developed in 11 languages and includes an original soundtrack from JUNO nominated band YAMANTAKA // SONIC TITAN & Pantayo.

“We were impressed by Severed’s sword-swinging mechanic that’s both intuitive and effective, the thoughtful approach taken for touchscreen-only controls, and the Metal optimizations used to create its high fidelity graphics and effects, and as well as its support for Game Center Achievements, ReplayKit to record video and audio, 3D Touch to Peek & Pop in-game maps, and iCloud for syncing game play between devices” – 2017 Apple Design Awards
