Tim Schafer, founder of Double Fine Productions, wins the BAFTA Games Fellowship Award at the BAFTA Games Awards 2018.

Ex-Lucasarts genius, Tim Schafer  accepted the BAFTA Games Fellowship Award on Thursday in London.  Tim brought us classics such as Full Throttle, Grim Fandango and Day of the Tentacle to name a few.  Schafer said:

“It’s kind of bewildering,” he says modestly, “because there’s nothing quite like this in America. It’s not like just being awarded with something, more like being welcomed into something. I enjoy that feeling.”
