The lights are on
BioWare co-founders Dr. Ray Muzyka and Dr. Greg Zeschuk will accept Lifetime Achievement Awards during this year's Game Developers Conference.
Dubbed the "BioWare Doctors," Muzyka and Zeschuk met while attending medical school at the University of Alberta. Their shared interest in video games led them to full-time careers in the industry, where they produced influential series including Mass Effect, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, and Dragon Age at BioWare. Muzyka and Zeschuk stepped down from BioWare last year to focus on family and solo projects.
The GDC awards are held yearly in San Francisco to celebrate the world’s top video games and developers. This year's Choice Awards will be hosted by Double Fine President and CEO Tim Schafer, while Andy Schatz, creator of indie game Monaco, will be hosting the Independent Games Festival Awards. The Game Developer’s Choice Awards ceremony will be held on March 27. For more information, visit the official website.
Congrats to them both! A Lifetime Achievement Award is a true accomplishment!
That's awesome! Congrats! That is truly a great achievement!
No mention of Baldur's Gate 1/2 or Neverwinter Nights?
Good for those guys. Now then. . . a third (ahem) Knights of the Old Republic game, anyone? Could garner them another award. . .
They deserve it, mostly.
Good for you guys you deserve it
Good for them, they deserve the recognition.
