A highlight of the annual Nordic Game conference, this year’s edition of the Nordic Game Awards takes place in the Unreal Theatre, the main auditorium of Slagthuset, on Thursday, 18 May at 18:00.
Host of the show Niels Forsberg will hand out prizes in eight categories, with the nominated games announced this week – concluding today with “Nordic GotY – Small Screen” and “Nordic GotY”:
Nordic Game of the Year – Small Screen
Nordic studios make great games in all formats, and mobile platforms in particular have seen many stellar Nordic titles. Some of the latest standouts have been nominated for the “Nordic GotY – Small Screen” award, including Supercell’s smash hit Clash Royale.
Nordic Game of the Year
Nordic GotY – the most prestigious award of the show and highpoint of the 2017 Nordic Game Awards. A fun fact is that nearly all of the nominated studios have previously taken the stage at Nordic Game. This year, Playdead opens NG17 with an “insider” tech talk about their multiple award-winning title INSIDE (here), veteran hit-maker IO Interactive will delve into the AI of Hitman (here), Massive Entertainment CEO David Polfeldt joins legendary Japanese game designer Fumito Ueda in a much anticipated “fireside chat” (here), while both EA DICE and Owlboy creator Jo-Remi Madsen have spoken at past Nordic Game conferences.
Congratulations to all the nominees for the 2017 Nordic Game Awards. See you at the show!
