The fourteenth qualifier of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest Season III took place on 11 April at Reboot Develop Blue in Dubrovnik, Croatia.
Returning to the Dalmatian coast for a third NGDC season, hopes were high for another great contest with really strong games. And the expectations were certainly fulfilled, with the judges having a very difficult time picking a winner from among this year’s outstanding competitors.
In the end, it was the narrative-driven conversational puzzle game Interrogation from Critique Gaming that came out on top.
Check out the teaser trailer:
Congratulations to Critique Gaming and see you for the NGDC Grand Finals at NG19 next month!
Also a big thanks to the organisers of Reboot Develop Blue, who also once again did a great job organising their event, gathering many of the most talented developers from Croatia and across Europe to Dubrovnik.
