5th Digital Art (Interactive Art) Division Excellence Award
MIYAMOTO Shigeru [Japan]
Reason for Award
Pikmin meets head on the death of living creatures that most games tend to conceal. In spite of the seriousness of the story, the fantastic graphics and realistic collective behavior of the Pikmin leave gamers with a heart-warming feeling. Pikmin’s natural incorporation of light and dark creates a realism not previously experienced in video games.
