The 2014 Saxxy Award Winners Were Announced Today

Video: Here’s one of my favourite action shorts, uploaded by Callegos Yavolitak, although you can take a look at the finalists for the machinima competition held by Valve (and overall winner) here.


  • I watched & voted on all 51 of the entries, and the quality really suffered compared to the last two years. Nothing comparable to Bad Medicine, Story of a Sentry or Little Buddy Pyro. The finalists were really the only decent entries (plus a few which were disqualified for being uploaded too late).

    Most of the better community animators have been busy with End of the Line, so hopefully that will be socks-blowing-off awesome.

  • Animation vs Animator is such a ‘done’ concept, and was so simple compared to everything else… It didn’t deserve to win.

    • I have to agree. Even if it’s never really been done in the context of a game, it didn’t do anything that hasn’t been seen a thousand times since the days of Looney Tunes either. I was expecting at least a nod to the irony that they were both themselves someone else’s animation.
