In what I believe may be a first, a modification of a game has won the interactive media award at the prestigious AWGIE awards, which recognises Australia's best writers in the fields of television, film and interactive media.

The mod that won the award is called The Forgotten City, and was released back in 2015.  It's a spectacular peice of work, with incredibly good writing, solidly put together environments, and a fantastic original soundtrack. For those who haven't played the mod, it's essentially a giant murder mystery evening set in an underground dungeon, complete with rather interesting puzzles, several possible endings and great character dialogue.

So impressed with the mod were the Australian Actors Guild, that they felt the mod's author, Nick Pearce, deserved recognition alongside some of the countries' finest television, film and game writers.

Among other winners in various other categories at the 49th AWGIE awards was the popular television soap Neighbours, and the television series The Code, so for a Skyrim mod to be featured here is very impressive indeed.

Nick had apparently spent more than 1,700 hours working on The Forgotton City, and even more impressively, this is his first serious attempt at releasing a mod to the public. If you've never played this mod before, it's definitely worth downloading now from Nexus Mods or Steam Workshop. This is an award winning mod, after all.
