Neverwinter Nights redefines the electronic role-playing game genre using the fully 3-D BioWare Aurora Engine and the Third Edition of the Dungeons & Dragons core rulebook. The game contains a 60- to 100-hour single-player campaign that is also playable in multiplayer mode.

BioWare Corp., an Edmonton-based video-game developer known internationally for developing both the genre-defining Baldur's Gate series and Neverwinter Nights, credits 5 years of hard work by top-notch development staff, and an incredibly creative fan community for this award.

"We are thrilled that the work of the BioWare Neverwinter Nights team was recognized in this way," said Dr. Ray Muzyka, Joint CEO of BioWare Corp. and Co-Executive Producer of Neverwinter Nights. "We have some of the best game developers in the world here, and it's wonderful to see their work receive this level of recognition," he concluded.

"We think that the Neverwinter Nights fan community shares this honour with us," said Dr. Greg Zeschuk, Joint CEO of BioWare Corp. and Co-Executive Producer of Neverwinter Nights. "Since the game's release, the Neverwinter Nights community has created nearly 1500 new adventures, many of them high-quality, compelling games in their own right. It's this kind of community development that is really allowing Neverwinter Nights to shine."
