It won two games of the year at the Game Awards

Hazelight Studios’ cooperative adventure game It Takes Two won the Game of the Year Award at the 2021 Game Awards. It is one of six nominees for the award, including Deathloop, Resident Evil Village, Psychonauts 2, Metroid Dread and Rachet & Clank: Rift Apart.

The award was accepted by Hazelight Studios director Josef Fares, who did not give his acceptance speech as he did during the “fuck Oscar” moment during the 2017 Game Awards. Instead, he thanked the other members of the Hazelight team and dedicated this award to his daughters.
