TouchArcade Rating:

Apple just announced the Apple Design Awards nominees for 2024 ahead of WWDC. These include a plethora of games and apps across different categories and Apple platforms. The newest addition is spatial games here. The award categories are split up into: Delight and Fun, Inclusivity, Innovation, Interaction, Social Impact, Visuals & Graphics, and Spatial Computing. The game nominees for Delight and Fun are What The Car?, NYT Games, and Hello Kitty: Island Adventures. For inclusivity, the nominees are: Unpacking, Quadline, and Crayola Adventures. The innovation nominees are COD Warzone Mobile, Lost in Play, and Wavelength. The interaction nominees are Little Nightmares, Rytmos, and Finity..

The social impact nominees are The Wreck, Cityscapes: Sim Builder, and The Bear. The visuals and graphics nominees are Death Stranding Director’s Cut ($19.99), Lies of P, and Honkai Star Rail. The spatial computing nominees are Synth Riders, Blackbox, and Loona: Cozy Puzzle Games. A lot of the games here I expected, but some are surprising based on the category they are nominated in. The winners will be revealed around WWDC 2024 which takes place on June 10th. I’m curious to see if we get any new game announcements at WWDC alongside iOS 18 and iPadOS 18 that will likely be there. What do you think of the nominees?
