Our hard work must be paying off! Animoca (also known as Outblaze Ventures) took home two major trophies at the Hong Kong Information & Communication Technology Awards 2013, or HKICTA. This is what we won:
Best Business Award (Start-Up): Gold Award for Animoca (Outblaze Ventures)
Best Digital Entertainment Award (Software): Gold Award for Star Girl
The HKICTA is the leading technology awards programme in this part of the world. This scheme is backed by the Hong Kong SAR Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, and exists to recognize and promote the best achievements of the territory’s technology industry.
If you don’t know much about the Hong Kong technology scene, consider that Forbes recently named this city the world’s top technology capital to watch after Silicon Valley and New York.
Here is a photo of a few Animocans at the gala dinner and presentation ceremony:
Grabbing two of the top awards at the most prestigious awards event in the city is a fantastic accomplishment for Animoca and we are all immensely proud. The production team behind Star Girl in particular was so excited that their game won top honours that they promptly managed to break the trophy with their excessively enthusiastic handling.
Good job we have two awards! Fortunately the trophy was quickly repaired after we succeeded in calming down the Star Girl team.
Animoca would like to thank all our fans and players, whose support helped us to win these awards. Thank you for following us, supporting us, and playing Animoca games!
