Marcin Wronka, ustatkowanygracz.pl, jury member commented:

The last couple years belong to the darker winners of Digital Dragons Awards – last year The Medium won while this year Dying Light 2 is celebrating. Techland did its absolute best releasing a sequel worthy of its great first instalment. While the competition was stiff, Aiden’s adventures can once again boast fluent parkour, combat that’s just a lot of fun and adrenaline that’s boiling during night time treks through the city. The game’s promised constant evolution and support over the years guarantees new expansions and activities as we wait for the next game. While I’m used to the high quality of Polish games I am still tremendously happy that such big titles are being made in our studios.

Jacek Wandzel, Digital Dragons Awards and Indie Showcase coordinator also added:

At this year’s Digital Dragons Awards we saw the triumphs of literally giant games – Cyberpunk, Dying Light 2, Elden Ring. Quite deserved triumphs, results of not only budgets and hard work, but also great design, gameplay, and devotion to their fans. But it is also a victory for the indie or premium indie segments: Serial Cleaners and BLACKTAIL are authentically, audio-visually outstanding in a way that seemingly only smaller titles can manage. In fact, all the nominees deserved to win, including the smaller, adorable Railbound. Not to mention the titles that weren’t nominated – it’s not their fault but of the absolute cornucopia provided by the Polish and global gamedev.

The list of all nominated games in all Polish categories was co-created by the entire gamedev community via a survey sent out by the organizers. The final verdict was in the hands of the jury: Wojciech Kasprzyk (Gameplanet), Mateusz Witczak, dr hab. Paweł Węgrzyn (Uniwersytet Jagielloński), Krystian Smoszna (Gry-OnLine.pl), Mariusz Borkowski (GameMusic), Michał Król (Graczpospolita), Marcin Wronka (Ustatkowany Gracz), Ewa Czekała (Polsat Games) and Shin Imai (IGN Japan).

The winner in the Best Polish Game category received a special prize funded by the conference’s technology partner, AMD, in the form of a professional PC, at the heart of which is an extremely powerful Ryzen Threadripper Pro processor. The Best Polish Game Audio award was presented by Marta Nawrocka, a representative of the Krakow Film Music Festival. Last year, the KPT and the FMF established cooperation and since then the works awarded in the music category have been presented during the FMF. Last year’s winner, Arkadiusz Reikowski’s soundtrack from The Medium – will be heard on May 25.
