Last night Dontnod Entertainment took home multiple awards for its 2015 game Life Is Strange at the 13th annual Games For Change Festival's award ceremony in New York.

That's a notable if unsurprising bit of recognition for the studio, which was nominated for three different Games For Change awards this year. It wound up winning two of them: "Game of the Year" and game with "Most Significant Impact."

Games For Change also named game designer, writer, artist and onetime Gamasutra blogger Mary Flanagan the winner of its Vanguard Award (formerly known as the Game Changer Award) for her "extraordinary contributions to the games for change world."

The full list of this year's Games For Change award winners is as follows:

  • Game of the Year: Life Is Strange, Dontnod Entertainment

  • Most Significant Impact: Life Is Strange, Dontnod Entertainment

  • Best Gameplay: Block'hood, Plethora Project

  • Most Innovative: That Dragon, Cancer, Numinous Games
