Ovid Works wins NGDC in Poland


On 12 October, three contestants took the stage at the GIC in Poznan, Poland. Their mission – to battle for a coveted spot in the Nordic Game Discovery Contest Season III Grand Finals at NG19 next May.

Kicking-off the GIC on the day before the conference, the NGDC qualifier in Poznan saw Polish studio Ovid Works come out on top, closing out the competition with their game Metamorphosis.

Metamorphosis is as Kafkaesque first-person adventure where puzzle-platforming, stealth and exploration merge with an extraordinary story about a tiny bug on a heroic quest to save its humanity.

A big congrats to Ovid Works and see you in Malmö at Nordic Game 2019! And a warm thank you to the organisers of GIC for hosting this season’s fifth NGDC qualifier.
