highly coveted Vector Monkey, the Game Audio Network Guild's audio awards are the most respected acknowledgements of achievement in video game sound design in the development community. As such, the aural masterminds over at Media Molecule have a lot to celebrate. GANG's recently released list of 2009 nominees is extremely LittleBigPlanet-centric -- the texturized, D.I.Y. platformer netted eight nods; most notably, it's in the running for Music of the Year, Best Interactive Score and overall Audio of the Year.
Other highly nominated titles include World of Warcraft with five nods, and Fable II, Gears 2, Star Wars: TFU and Dead Space with four a piece. Winners will be announced during GANG's 7th Annual Awards Show, held in conjunction with the 2009 Game Developers Conference on March 26. We've got the full list of nominees posted after the break!
