The sixth qualifier of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest Season IV took place in Lithuania on 17 November, as the NGDC returned to GameOn in Vilnius for a third year.
Lithuanian studio Tag of Joy was the local favorite to earn a seat in the NGDC Season IV Grand Finals, with their game Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit up against entries from Germany and Finland.
Though the Vilnius-based developer did very well, in the end it was German Hekate that came out on top with Ad Infinitum, their first person horror game set during World War I.
Check out the game trailer:
A big congratulations to Hekate on their victory and a huge thank you to the organisers of GameOn for another great event. See you at NG20 next May for the NGDC Season IV finalist expo and grand finals!
