Nominees for the Best Original Video Game Score at the 56th Ivor Novello Awards have been announced, with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, James Bond 007: Blood Stone, and Napoleon: Total War all under consideration.
Nitin Sawhney was nominated for Ninja Theory's Enslaved, Richard Jacques for Blood Stone, from now shuttered developer Bizarre Creations, and Richard Beddow, Richard Birdsall, and Ian Livingstone for The Creative Assembly's Napoleon: Total War.
The 2010 ceremony was the first to introduce a special video game category, although the awards themselves are now in their sixth decade. The categories are presented annually by the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors and judged by the music community, with no input from publishers or record companies.
The winner of last year's award was Guerrilla Games' Killzone 2, with other nominees being Empire: Total War and Savage Moon: Waldgeis.
The 2011 winners will be announced at a gala event on May 19, at Grosvenor House in London. Further information can be found at the official website.
