This week, the co-founders of BioWare, Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk, are set to receive one of Canada’s highest honors for their work in gaming. The two will receive the Order of Canada, one of the country’s highest honors, for their contributions to video games over their careers. It’s the country’s second-highest honor and one that they don’t give out to just anyone as 103 different people were up for the honor this year. Both men had more to say to the CBC and on their own Twitter accounts about the honor.

Zeschuk didn’t believe it at first when he got the call.
“It was shocking,” he told CBC News. “We just try to do great stuff and try and help people and try and work with great people and build things, and to be recognized for that is really an amazing honour.”
