This week, the Tribeca Film Festival revealed its first-ever official Tribeca Games Award line up.


The games under consideration for the award are as follows:

  • The Big Con

  • Harold Halibut

  • Kena: Bridge of Spirits

  • Lost in Random

  • Norco

  • Sable

  • Signalis

  • Twelve Minutes

Games have been present since the festival honored LA Noire in 2011.


"For over a decade, our mission has been to be a catalyst for placing games and their creators at the forefront of mainstream and artistic culture alongside film, TV and VR/AR,” said Tribeca Enterprises and Tribeca Festival co-founder and CEO Jane Rosenthal.


"We continue to embrace the cross pollination and intersection of these storytellers with this year's Tribeca Games Official Selections. And this is just the beginning."


The Tribeca Film Festival is scheduled to take place June 11-20.
