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 is introducing the Nordic Game Discovery Contest (NGDC) – an exciting, competitive challenge, where selected game projects are showcased at live-pitch events in several countries, organised by Nordic Game Ventures.
The Nordic Game Discovery Contest debuts on 5 October at the Day Zero pre-event of the Northern Game Summit (6-7 October) in Kajaani, Finland. The tour continues at Konsoll in Bergen, Norway on 19 October and at Sweden Game Conference in Skövde, Sweden on 21 October.
Winners from Kajaani, Bergen and Skövde (as well as later stops on the NGDC tour) will earn a place in the Nordic Game Discovery Contest Finals at next year’s Nordic Game conference, 17-19 May.
