DarkBASIC has been proud to receive many different awards since its release in 1999. Here we highlight the most significant ones.

Best Product Award 2002

At the tail-end of 2002 DarkBASIC was proud to receive two of the most prestigious IT awards available in Russia. The first award was an experts' vote where DarkBASIC won first prize in the category of Computer Creativity at the annual all-Russian contest of multimedia CD-ROMs Content 2002. The second award came a few days later when DarkBASIC also scooped the Best Product 2002 award in the Home Entertainment CD-Rom category from PC World magazine - Russian Edition. This is a popular readers vote and DarkBASIC received 41.5% of all votes compared to the closest runner-up of only 20%
