Every WWDC brings forth the prestigious Apple Design Awards, where Apple honors their favorite apps of the past year. These are generally gorgeous, visually-striking apps, and Apple hasn’t been shy about awarding a few games each year. This year, three different games were given the honor and their developers handed a glowing cube as their trophy:

As with pretty much any of the ADA winners, they instinctually just make sense. Lara Croft GO is an inordinately clever game that’s gorgeous; INKS is from a developer that Apple has featured several times before, and it lets you make gorgeous works of art on their pinball table levels. Chameleon Run is a sign that they’re still featuring small indies, with the game being primarily developed by just one dude from Prague, and published by a team based out of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. And Chameleon Run is still a well-made game with a unique look. And it, like the other games, is well-deserving of this high honor from Apple.
