Building on 14 years of running major successful events in the games industry, including several live-pitching events, selection processes and support systems, Nordic Game launched the Nordic Game Discovery Contest (NGDC) in 2016 – an exciting, competitive challenge, where selected game projects are showcased at live-pitch events in several countries.
TeamOcmo’s NGDC “Game of the Year” win and award ceremony at NG17 concluded a fantastic Nordic Game Discovery Contest debut season, and raises a high bar for the studios and teams to follow in the upcoming 2017-2018 tour.
Several new events can already be welcomed to the NGDC second season caravan:
