The seventh qualifier of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest Season IV took place in Linköping, Sweden on 27 November, as the NGDC debuted at the annual LiU Game Conference.
Supported by a lively audience, the three contestants delivered an intense pitch battle, with split decisions after each of the four rounds. But Swedish studio Friendly Fire did best with their game Plunder Pack – a stealth strategy game about a rag-tag group of animals on a mission to steal from the rich to give to the poor.

A big congratulations to Friendly Fire on their victory and a huge thank you to the organisers of the LiU Game Conference for a great event. See you at NG20 next May for the NGDC Season IV finalist expo and grand finals!
NGDC Season IV is sponsored by Xsolla, Versus Evil, Plan of Attack, Matchmade, Nordic Game Ventures, Karmafy, Microsoft, DDM and 80 Level.
