Untitled Goose Game Wins Top Bill at the 2020 D.I.C.E. Awards

It was a wonderful night in Las Vegas, and the winner is one mischievous goose.

The 23rd annual D.I.C.E. Awards took place tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the goose took home the top honors. House House's Untitled Goose Game stole off with the Game of the Year award, snatching two other categories on the way out as well.

Also picking up multiple awards were Remedy Entertainment's Control, which won the most trophies with four total, including Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction; and Kojima Productions' Death Stranding, which took home two technical awards in Outstanding Technical Achievement and Outstanding Achievement in Audio Design.

And while this may not be one single game, Nintendo's stable of games performed well. Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Luigi's Mansion 3, Super Mario Maker 2, and surprisingly Mario Kart Tour all got awards tonight. It was a big year for the Switch, and it showed.
