Upcoming game title The Movies, which will be offered as a Mac OS X port, has won a highly prestigious BAFTA award.

The game was declared the Best Video Game Simulation at BAFTA's British Academy Video Games Awards. The game is to be published by Feral Interactive.

The game casts players as movie moguls in Hollywood. They must build their studio from a car park into a huge studio complex, and must finance the venture through the release of huge movie blockbusters.

The Mac port delivers exclusive Mac-only features, including game-to-iPod export and support for sound effects from iMovie and GarageBand in the movies gamers create in the game.

Wannabe directors get a break, too - they game is "packed with tools to help you write and direct your own films". Movies you make can be uploaded to a public website and shared with other gamers worldwide.
