Now it’s up to the competitors to battle it out on stage in front of the NGDC judges and a live audience. Who will win a seat for the NGDC Grand Finals at Nordic Game 2019 next May?
“It’s really good to be back at F&S Play,” says NGDC host and Nordic Game CCO Jacob Riis. “The NGDC was there for the first time last fall, and we saw so many games of really high quality. I can’t wait to see this year’s contestants battle it out in our new contest format!”
“It is a great pleasure for us to host the NGDC again here in Bilbao,” says F&S Play organiser Hafo. “We believe it represents a huge opportunity for local developers to promote their latest work.”
F&S Play runs from 7-10 December with the NGDC qualifier on 9 December. Looking forward to seeing you in there!
