The nominations for this year's Writers' Guild Awards are in, with Rhianna Pratchett, Mike Bithell and Graham Goring all recognised in the video games category.
Pratchett has been shortlisted for the recent Tomb Raider reboot, Bithell for Thomas Was Alone and Goring for Lego City Undercover. All took to Twitter to express their delight at the nominations.
Oooh Tomb Raider has been shortlisted for a Writers' Guild of GB award. Exciting! Means I have to get fancy. http://t.co/1MrV3LvkkW— Rhianna Pratchett (@rhipratchett) October 6, 2013
Although Bithell's tweets suggested he wasn't entirely confident that he'd win the final award.
people are going to be so disappointed when they realise how much of a fluke Thomas' script was :)— Mike Bithell @ San Francisco (@mikeBithell) October 5, 2013
not sent an email about where the award ceremony is, etc. So I've not won, probably. Nice to be nominated though :)— Mike Bithell @ San Francisco (@mikeBithell) October 5, 2013
The ceremony takes place in London on November 13.
