Hekate's Ad Infinitum led this year's German Computer Game Awards with three honors.

The survival horror title took home the awards for Newcomer Award – Best Debut, Best Audio Design, and Best Story.

Among the event's 15 categories, Larian Studios creator of Baldur's Gate 3, whom we spoke with earlier today, won Best International Game.

While the German Computer Awards recognizes games across 15 categories, its winners and nominees also receive monetary prizes.

The Player of the Year and Best International Game award recipients do not receive prize money.
