Submissions deadline for the NGDC qualifier at DStars Connects is 15 March – apply now!
On 28 March, the Nordic Game Discovery Contest (NGDC) will debut with their next fifth season qualifier at the new Italian industry event DStars Connects.
“Big congrats to the organisers of DStars Connects on celebrating Italian developers with this new gathering,” says NGDC host and Nordic Game CCO Jacob Riis. “I’m thrilled to be hosting a qualifying round of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest as part of this event, and it’ll be very interesting to see and meet the contestants.”
“We are very happy to welcome NGDC to DStars Connects,” says Gamera Interactive CEO and DStars creator Alberto Belli. “Everything started three years ago with an online survey and the idea of celebrating Italian devs all around the world properly. Now we are launching a full digital conference with such an amazing partner since its first edition, boosting indie studios work and giving them incredible exposure and access to a huge business network. We are super proud of this, willing to help other fellow devs in our country.”
Are you developing or have you already developed a game that deserves more attention than it’s received so far? And are you attending DStars Connects?
If so, submit your game and prepare to participate in the third qualifying round of NGDC Season V – and maybe go all the way to the online Grand Finals this fall at NG21 in November.
Please complete the submission form for the NGDC Season V qualifier at DStars Connects right here.
