The award ceremony was held on a river ferry!  Check out this YouTube highlighting several of the awards "Witcher 2" received.



At 1:07 you get to see the introduction for Best European Art Direction award with Botanicula in 3rd place.  Which begs the question of what the rankings were throughout the 22 categories.  Until a week before winners were announced the EGA site was showing intermediate voting results - which they then disabled to "keep the tension high".  Wish we could see all the rankings.  The last time I checked, Botanicula was trending high in several categories.

I also wonder if anyone from Amanita Design attended the award ceremonyand got to meet CatWoman. Rrrrow!;~}
