The annual BAFTA Games Awards took place in the UK yesterday, and although Xbox didn't have a major presence amongst the winners (PlayStation's Returnal scooped the 'Best Game' award whilst Forza Horizon 5 was given the best 'British Game' award), Phil Spencer had a few words to say about one of the other winners from the night.

Taking to Twitter, Spencer shared praise for the Xbox Game Pass title, The Artful Escape, which took home the 'Artistic Achievement' award. Spencer called it "a highlight of gaming last year for me" in his tweet:

This isn't the first time Spencer has talked about The Artful Escape, stating back in September 2021 that the game is "one of those creative gems that make our industry and artform such a fun place." We loved it too here at Pure Xbox, giving it a "great" 8/10 score and calling it "one of the most unique adventures you'll go on all year."

Elsewhere, Xbox's Aaron Greenberg also made sure to give substantial praise to Playground Games for winning the 'British Game' award for Forza Horizon 5 yesterday, adding yet another trophy to the cabinet for the Forza series.
