Bostjan Cadez, who created the online drawing tool as a class project, is one of three recipients who will be honored Wednesday for innovation in game design at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The other two winners are Nintendo for Wii Play and Capcom Entertainment for Okami, both of which are also nominated for best game of the year.
“This is the awards show that maps closely to the Oscars because all the nominations come from the community and all voting comes from their peers,” said Jamil Moledina, executive director of the Game Developers Conference. “(Cadez) is in very strong company.”
