Nordic Game partner Futuregames shares a special message in the run-up to NG21 May: Design a games character that expresses the diversity of identity that makes up the Nordic region in 2021.
The Nordic region of today is made up of thousands of different identities, personalities and backgrounds. Long gone are the days of Viking world domination and instead we are seeing a great diversity of culture and expression. But how do we visualize the diversity of the Nordic region in 2021 with a games character?
