Canadian-made hit 2D run-and-gun game Cuphead has been nominated for three Webby Awards.

Cuphead, which is developed by Oakville, Ontario-based Studio MDHR, is up for ‘Best Action Game,’ ‘Best Visual Design‘ and ‘Best Art Direction‘ at the Webby Awards, which honours excellence on the internet.

Unlike many awards ceremonies, the public has a say in the Webby Awards, with voting open until Thursday, April 19th.

Cuphead isn’t the only Canadian-made Webby nominee, either, as the ReBlink app used in the Art Gallery of Ontario is also up for ‘Best Use of Augmented Reality.’

Fans can cast their votes here.

Even without fan input, though, Cuphead has swept up quite the handful of industry awards over the past several months.

The game won three awards at both December’s Game Awards ceremony (including ‘Best Independent Game’) and February’s D.I.C.E. Awards (including ‘Outstanding Achievement in Animation’) and ‘Best Debut Game’ and ‘Best Visual Art’ at the Game Developers Choice Awards in March.

Cuphead‘s next awards opportunity is in the BAFTA Game Awards on Thursday, April 12th, where the game has been nominated in four different categories, including ‘Best Debut Game.’

Studio MDHR has also sold over two million copies of the game since its launch on Xbox One and PC in September 2017.
