CAMPS wins NGDC qualifier in Tallinn

Nordic Game is pleased to announce the winner of the special Nordic Game Discovery Contest (NGDC) qualifier in Tallinn, Estonia, where studios attending the upcoming Game Wave Festival had a unique chance to earn a seat in the NGDC Season VI finals this November.

Many exciting games were submitted, but in the end the NGDC board of experts selected Finnish studio Escapism Softworks and their game CAMPS as the winner. CAMPS is a team-based, immersive tactical battle game for PC with great visuals and a fresh take on the genre.

Big congrats to Escapism Softworks who now joins the NGDC Season VI finalists, with three teams to be selected to compete this fall before a live audience for the prestigious NGDC Game of the Year title.
