Life is Strange: True Colors wins Peabody Award
A well-deserved win
The George Foster Peabody Awards (or simply Peabody Awards), named for the American businessman and philanthropist George Peabody, honor what are described as the most powerful, enlightening, and invigorating stories in television, radio, and nowadays, games. The awards were conceived by the National Association of Broadcasters in 1938 as the radio industry’s equivalent of the Pulitzer Prizes
The Peabody Awards only started honoring games last year, with Return of the Obra Dinn and Gorogoa taking home wins, both of which are available on Switch. For this year, yet another Switch game has received the honor.
Life is Strange: True Colors has won a Peabody in the Interactive & Immersive narrative category at the Peabody Awards, along with That Dragon, Cancer. Life is Strange: True Colors was chosen for, “showcasing both empathy as a superpower and the power of games as a medium for emotionally resonant storytelling.”
While we don’t dish out Peabody’s, we certainly thought Life is Strange: True Colors was a fantastic title. You can see our full thoughts in this review!
