Lone Wolf - Blood on the Snow, the roleplay videogame for tablets and smartphones, based on Joe Dever’s fantasy saga and realised by Forge Reply, has won the prestigious Drago d’Oro prize1 in two important categories: "best Italian videogame" and "best game design".
These two acknowledgements were awarded to Joe Dever’s Lone Wolf - Blood on the Snow, for having combined, on one hand, the experience of a non-linear interactive reading with distinctive elements of a true roleplay game: from the combat system with 3D graphics to the protagonist personalisation, and on the other hand, for having brought all these components together in one game, which on every level exalts its innovative charge and high level of quality.
"I am delighted to have worked with Forge Reply on such a unique game" said Joe Dever, Lone Wolf author - "It is a fantastic situation because all those involved in the game’s production and publishing grew up reading my adventures. The capacity and enthusiasm of the whole team made this project very special for me. I’m really proud of the awards we’ve received; it is further incentive for all of us working on the game to put our best into its continuing development. Blood on the Snow is only the first act of the story. In 2014 we will complete the story with the three remaining episodes".
Lone Wolf is a series of 28 adventure gamebooks, published originally from 1984 by the award-winning fantasy author Joe Dever. With more than 10 million books sold throughout the world, Lone Wolf is one of the most popular series of gamebooks of all time. The Drago d’Oro awards were given for the first act of the game which is already available on Apple’s App Store and Google Play. The other three acts will be published during 2014, each of these offering new contents in terms of both narrative and game.
The awards were given to Lone Wolf - Blood on the Snow by a jury of 13 from the main national publications, publications specialised in videogames and from the TV world.
1 The "Italian Drago d’Oro" award, sponsored by AESVI (Italian Videogame Editors Developers Association), is dedicated to Italian excellence in the videogame field and has 4 categories: Best Game Design, Best Technical Realization, Best Artistic Realization, and Best Italian Videogame. www.premiodragodoro.it
