The Nordic Game Discovery Contest will be back in Croatia for this season’s fourteenth qualifier at Reboot Develop Blue, this year from 11-13 April in Dubrovnik. The NGDC qualifier takes place on Thursday, 11 April, and we’re looking forward to it.
“Reboot Develop Blue is one of the top industry conferences in the world, and it’s fantastic to be back with the contest,” says NGDC host and Nordic Game CCO Jacob Riis. “I can’t wait to see which games will make it as finalists, and how they’ll perform under the immense pressure – and fun – that are all part of our on stage pitch format.”
“We understand the visibility challenge that many are facing today, and one of our main focuses is to spotlight new talent. We are happy to host the Nordic Game Discovery Contest again as an official part of our ground-breaking edition of the Reboot Develop Blue conference,” says Reboot Develop Blue head of business Pavol Buday.
