London, United Kingdom - November 3rd, 2022 - Indie studio godolphin games is delighted to announce that their radical voice-controlled thriller, Unknown Number: A First Person Talker, picked up 8 awards as part of the internationally renowned NYX Game Awards 2022. Unknown Number launched on Steam in September earlier this year.
The 2022 NYX Awards were held on November 2nd where Unknown Number won: 4x Grand prize awards, in “PC Game - Best Storytelling”, “PC Game - Indie”, “PC Game - Innovation” and “PC Game - Best Audio Design”, as well as 4x Gold prize awards in “PC Game - Adventure”, “PC Game - Best Narrative”, “PC Game - Best Performance” and “PC Game - Puzzle”.
“We’re honoured to have Unknown Number recognised on this international stage", said Thomas Keane, Creative Director of godolphin games. “Our ambition has always been to kickstart the conversation about voice-control in games - and these awards will hopefully inspire other developers to start creating First Person Talkers of their own."
The first game in an all-new genre called a “First Person Talker'', Unknown Number combines elements from action adventure, interactive story and Alternate Reality Games to create a high-octane gameplay experience. After receiving a call from a stranger, Unknown Number thrusts the player into a daring heist in the middle of the North Sea, and gives them a chance to save the world using nothing but their voice. An innovative voice-controlled adventure told entirely through interactive phone calls, players must talk, sing, whisper and shout their way through challenges and encounters, as well as using the in-game browser to navigate the web to solve a wide variety of puzzles.
