Kris Piotrowski (and a representative from Superbrothers) enjoyed a brief visit to NYC last week, prompted by a couple of Sworcery nominations from the New York Videogame Critics Circle. We’re super pleased to report that Sworcery took home the award for Best Mobile Game, and we’re also super pleased to report that Kris had a great time hanging out with Andy Nealen & friends all over beautiful Manhattan.
