Sproing Interactive Media GmbH, Austria's largest game development company, today announced that its original WWII turn-based strategy game for the Nintendo DS, Panzer Tactics, won the 2008 Console Game of The Year Award at last night's German Game Developer Awards. Voted on by a panel of publishers, developers service providers and the media, the German Game Developer Awards recognize games released in the past year that represent special merit in gameplay, design, innovation, interface, and quality.
"We're extremely proud of the quality, innovation and overall gameplay experience that we delivered in Panzer Tactics DS and the recognition we've received from the German Game Developer Awards is a testament to the overall experience," said Harald Riegler, CEO of Sproing. "We took a lot of risks to create an immersive game for a mass-market audience and the Console Game of The Year Award makes it all worth while. We look forward to the next project which gives us the opportunity to build upon this success."
Panzer Tactics incorporates leading edge technology on the Nintendo DS including 4-player local network play, Wi-Fi connection for online multiplayer, rankings, matchmaking, and more than 100 hours of immersive gameplay.
