Apple Design Awards 2022 winners were revealed at WWDC22, the global developer conference. Let's find out which games were awarded for their creative and innovative designs by their developers.
Apple Design Awards 2022 categories
The aim of the Apple Design Awards 2022 ceremony is to reward developers for their game design in 6 categories: Social Impact, Inclusivity, Innovation, Illustration and Animation, Interaction and Fun. For each of these, one game and one application are awarded. In this article, we will logically focus on the games.
Interaction - A Musical Story
Behind its minimalist design, A Musical Story hides an immersive experience that mixes narrative and rhythm games. With its well thought-out gameplay, magnificent music and sumptuous illustrations, the game from French studio Glee-Cheese Studio is well deserving of the Apple Design Awards 2022 for innovation.
Innovation - Marvel Future Revolution
Already voted iPad Game of the Year in 2021, Marvel Future Revolution is an open-world action-RPG that immerses you in the Marvel multiverse on mobile with its infinite number of characters. The combat phases are fluid and dynamic, the graphics are remarkable and the cinematics are breathtaking.
Social impact - Gibbon: Beyond the Trees
Gibbon: Beyond the Trees is an adventure game, exclusive to the Apple Arcade, about ecology. You play as a monkey searching for his family, who must make his way through beautiful hand-drawn landscapes. Its narrative plays on empathy for another species and climate change as seen through its prism, earning it the Apple Design Awards 2022 for Social Impact.
Inclusiveness - Wylde Flowers
Developed by Australian studio Drydock, Wylde Flowers is an immersive game with a refreshing narrative based on acceptance, solidarity and tolerance. It features a cast of characters of various ages, sexualities and cultures. Like its predecessor, Wylde Flowers is only available on the Apple Arcade.
Visual and Graphics - LEGO Star Wars: Castaways
Set in a galaxy far, far away, LEGO Star Wars: Castaways offers incredible visual quality, both in the cutscenes and in-game. As is often the case in LEGO games, the action and humour are both present. In addition, the game offers a wide range of customisation options and many colourful NPCs.
Fun - Overboard!
Let's finish with the most fun game according to the Apple Design Awards 2022 jury. At first glance, Overboard! looks like an investigation game where you have to solve a murder mystery. However, Overboard! has a little subtlety: you are the murderer!
You have to do everything you can to get out of it. To do this, you must hide clues, gain the trust of the people around you and send the investigators on false leads. Thanks to its different endings, Overboard! offers a high degree of replayability to achieve the best result.
So much for the Apple Design Awards 2022 winners. This selection is very varied and will appeal to all types of audiences.
