Bafta Game Awards 2017

Inside was the big winner at this year's British Academy Game Awards in London, winning four awards but not the night's biggest prize. Best Game went to Naughty Dog's Uncharted 4, its only prize of the evening.

Playdead's acclaimed indie Inside, won for Best Game Design, Best Artistic Achievement, Best Narrative and Best Original Property.

Uncharted saw off competition from Inside, Overwatch, Titanfall 2, Stardew Valley and Firewatch to win the night's biggest prize.

Elsewhere local multiplayer favourite Overcooked was a surprising but popular victory, with wins in the Family Game and British Game categories. Firewatch claimed two awards as well, for Best Debut and Best Performer, for Cissy Jones.
