The Nordic Game Discovery Contest got an early start on its fourth season with a fantastic debut in São Paulo at last month’s BIG Festival.
A very enthusiastic audience in Brazil cheered for their local heroes on the festival’s main stage, with the “football match” vibe putting extra pressure members of the NGDC jury, including Flávia Gazi (IGN), Jason della Rocca (Execution Labs), Justin Berenbaum (Xsolla) and Shirley Lin (DOGIgames) to get their questions right.
After a nail-biting final tabulation of the live pitch results, it was Brazilian studio Pink Array that came out in top with their game Grashers, a colorful twin-stick shooter roguelike set in outer space.
Check out the game trailer:
BIG congratulations to Pink Array for winning Season IV’s first NGDC qualifier and a huge thank you to the organisers of the BIG Festival for their fantastic support and a great show. See you at NG20 next May for the NGDC Season IV finalist expo and grand finals!
