The Nebula Awards, or Nebula Awards in English, are the highest possible award for a writer in the science fiction genre. Historically they focused on literature, but since 2019, the awards have had a category dedicated to video games, where The Outer Worlds has won the award for Best Video Game Script at the 2020 gala.
The Outer Worlds Association of Fantasy and Science Fiction Writers has recognized The Outer Worlds as the best-written science fiction game of the past 2019, which is why they have awarded Leonard Boyarsky (co-creator of Fallout) with the award, along with the rest of the game’s narrative team: Kate Dollarhyde, Paul Kirsch, Chris L’Etoile, Daniel McPhee, Carrie Patel, Nitai Poddar, Marc Soskin, and Megan Starks.
The other nominees for the award were Disco Elysium and Outer Wilds, as well as The Magician’s Workshop and Fate Accessibility Toolkit. Of these four, both Disco Elysium and Outer Wilds are considered two of the best games of 2019, with several nominations each at The Game Awards 2019. In fact, Disco Elysium obtained the statuette for Best Narrative at the said gala, although it was here that Obsidian won the award.
And it is curious that Obsidian has signed the writer of Outer Wilds this year for his next projects. But in any case, we remind you that this week The Outer Worlds goes on sale on Nintendo Switch and that the resolutions and performance of this version are already known. But if what you want is to delve into its contents, here is the analysis of The Outer Worlds.
