Organizers for the hóPlay International Video Game Festival, a new Spanish event that seeks to present and promote games that "stand out for their originality, creativeness, and innovation" announced the winners of its indie game competition.

Tale of Tales' Little Red Riding Hood-inspired horror/adventure game The Path and locally developed puzzle-platformer Los Delirios De Von Sottendorff Y Su Mente Cuadriculada (The Delusions of Von Sottendorff And Her Grid Mind) both won two awards each -- winners took home €6,000, or $8,082, for each award.

The full list of award winners follows:

  • Best Basque video-game: The Delusions of Von Sottendorff And Her Grid Mind by Delirium Studios - Bilbao, Spain
  • Special audience prize: iBasket by Ideateca - Bilbao, Spain (This award was chosen by the audience of hóPlay, which has had the opportunity to evaluate the games presented in the competition)
  • Best original idea: The Delusions of Von Sottendorff And Her Grid Mind by Delirium Studios - Bilbao, Spain
  • Best creative design: The Path by Tale of Tales - Gent, Belgium
  • Best sound/ music: The Path by Tale of Tales - Gent, Belgium
  • Best playability: MotorHeat by Milkstone Studios - de Siero, Asturias
The show's organizers also selected winners for its Xbox 360 Internship on Artistic Investigation awards: Aizpea Lasa (first, €1,500), Erik Morros Paja (second, €1,000), and Alain Astola (third, €500).

"We're very proud of these awards," said Tale of Tales' Auriea Harvey and Michael Samyn. "Our work is often praised for its experimental nature and its artistic depth, and somewhat marginalized because of this.

They continued, "But at hóPLAY, The Path won for its design and its sound without any reservations. This makes us proud and very hopeful for a future in which artistic achievement is rewarded as a natural aspect of videogame creation."
