It's sometimes easy to forget that WWDC 2018 is – well, should – be about the developers, especially if you are someone who tunes into the keynote to see what's going on with iOS 12 and nothing else. 

But celebrating developers is high on Apple's list and one of the ways it is doing this is with the inaugural Apple Design Award winners. This award showcases the best-looking games you can play on an Apple device, whether it be an iPhone, iPad or Apple TV

Winners of this award aren't just given a fancy bit of plastic to put in a cabinet (given this is Apple, it's actually a one-off aluminum cube) but they are also slathered with a bevy of goodies, including a: 5K iMac Pro, 256GB iPhone X, 15-inch MacBook Pro, 512GB iPad Pro (complete with Apple Pencil), 4K Apple TV, Apple Watch Series 3 and some AirPods.

Winners this year include the beautiful-looking Florence, the beautiful-looking Alto’s Odyssey and, well, you get the idea. 

The full list is below:
