Alias' Maya Games Win Spike TV Video Game Awards


Alias Systems announced that game titles developed using Maya software received four awards at the 1st annual Spike TV Video Game Awards held December 2nd in Las Vegas, Nevada. Spike TV, America's first network for men, recently recognized the best testosterone-fueled, bone-crunching video games in the industry. Titles of games developed through the use of Maya stormed past the competition to receive top honors in many categories, including:

    Game of the Year: Madden NFL 2004, from EA Sports
  • Best Driving Game: NASCAR Thunder 2004, also developed by EA Sports
  • Most Anticipated Game: Halo 2, created by Microsoft
  • Best Online Game: Final Fantasy XI, developed by Square Enix

Games made with Maya were represented in 14 out of 17 categories. In key categories such as Most Anticipated Game, five of eight nominees were created using Alias' Maya software.

"We extend our congratulations to all nominees and winners in this, the first year of the Spike TV Video Game Awards Show," said Geoff Foulds, games and interactive industry marketing manager at Alias. "The number of awards won by titles made with Maya in the VGAs and other industry competitions show that Maya's architecture, API and extensibility make it the best choice for game developers. And Alias is continuing to invest in Maya, ensuring that it remains the standard for blockbuster games on the next-generation consoles."

Launched in 2003, Spike TV's "VGAs" vision was the blending of real and animated worlds into a dynamic award show presentation. Spike TV presented the awards on Tuesday, December 2, 2003 during a ceremony at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.
