This month’s NG19 Free Pass Challenge deadline is 1 March. Submit your suggestions now!
Each month we select the best answer for our NG19 Free Pass Challenge. Winners receive a complimentary pass to next year’s Nordic Game conference, 22-24 May in Malmö, Sweden – and then a new monthly challenge begins.
January’s challenge was: As games and streaming continuously tie in together and some games already integrate Twitch inputs into them, what are the coolest creative possibilities for the future of viewer-player interactions?
We received lots of great answers (thank you!), but in the end the best reply came from Mike Hendrixen from Vertigo 6 in Holland:
“We think that the interaction between live-streamer and their viewers will bring endless possibilities. Twitch viewers will have a lot more influence on the stream. Not only by chatting with the live-streamer and sending audio/visual memes or messages during the live stream, but also having influence on actual gameplay like in Warhammer: Vermintide or Twitch Plays Pokémon. Viewers will not only challenge the live-streamer more to play the game they want, but also have an impact on actual gameplay or the story in the game.”
Also getting a free NG19 pass is Mario Vasilev from Imperia Online in Bulgaria, who came with Feruary’s best challenge suggestion. A big congrats to this month’s winners – your confirmation emails are on their way and see you at NG19 in May!
February’s NG19 Free Pass Challenge is:
“AI bots are now better than the real players. How will AI be integrated further into games and what will be the future uses of AI for both developers and players?”
Send your answer here before this month’s deadline: midnight Friday, 1 March!
PS: Send in suggestions for next month’s challenge as well – the best proposal will also win a free pass to NG19!
