Adelaide based Monkeystack has won two prestigious Game Connection Development Awards at Game Connection Europe 2018 for its collaboration on the PC/Console game, The Vault.

The Vault was nominated in five different categories - Best Console / PC Hardcore, Best Hardcore, Best Indie Game, Most Promising IP and the People’s Choice award, winning the Best Console / PC Hardcore Console and Best Indie Game categories.

Monkeystack company directors Justin Wight and Troy Bellchambers attended the awards presentation in Paris.

On winning the awards, Justin said, “To be recognized at these awards and be judged the top of the class by executives from companies like Sony, Microsoft, Ubisoft and EA Games is amazing. This is the second time we’ve been nominated and won awards at Game Connection, so Monkeystack’s ability to compete internationally and deliver serious games at a world-class level continues to grow. We’re really excited! The interactive space is evolving faster now than it has ever before and we’re very proud to be able to offer this level of export capability from South Australia locally, nationally and to the world.”
