Both Amiqus and our pro bono initiative Putting The G Into Gaming are shortlisted in the TIGA Games Industry Awards – and we couldn’t be more delighted.

It’s the first time that the TIGA Awards have taken place as a live event since the Covid-19 pandemic, and we are very much looking forward to meeting with industry colleagues and friends in November at the historic Church House Westminster.
