guitar-hero-iii-cover-imageThis year’s Game Developers Choice Awards will include two special awards being given to very worthy recipients.

The Pioneer Award will go to Harmonix co-founders Alex Rigopulos and Eran Egozy, whose most recent achievement is the world-changing Guitar Hero and Rock Band game franchises. It’s been fascinating to watch how Harmonix took the revolutionary ideas they came up with for Frequency and Amplitude and turned them into blockbuster mainstream entertainment.

The Ambassador Award will get taken home by the ever-charming composer Tommy Tallarico, co-founder of the Video Games Live concert series and founder of the Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.), in recognition of his tireless work to advance appreciation for the music in games.
Anyone going to the Game Developers Conference can join in the festivities on Wednesday, March 25th in the Esplanade Room in the South Hall of San Francisco’s Moscone Center. (Title lyric from the Donnas.)
