Update: NGDC submission deadline for the Athens Games Festival extended to 15 October – apply now!
The Nordic Game Discovery Contest will be back in Greece for a second consecutive year, this time with a third season qualifier of the new and enhanced NGDC live pitch contest on 20 October at the Athens Games Festival.
“We had such a great time last year, where we learned a lot about the evolving developer scene in Greece,” says NGDC host and Nordic Game CCO Jacob Riis. “We met so many great studios, not least qualifier winner Happyland Entertainment, who went on to win the prestigious People’s Choice Award at the second season NGDC Grand Finals in Malmö. It will be very exciting to see what Greece has in store for us this time around!”
“Last year we witnessed HappyLand Entertainment travelling to Malmö and winning the People’s Choice Award, and we were excited about that,” adds Athens Games Festival organiser Elina Roinioti. “Now with a second year for the Nordic Game Discovery Contest in Greece, our hopes are even greater!”
The qualifier in Athens will be the seventh on the NGDC Season III tour plan. The selected game will earn a spot in the NGDC Grand Finals next year at Nordic Game 2019, 22-24 May in Malmö, Sweden, as well as prizes from PR specialists Plan of Attack and Mail.ru.
