On 20 October, three competitors battled live on-stage at the Athens Games Festival for a chance to join the Nordic Game Discovery Contest Season III Grand Finals at NG19 next May.
The season’s intense seventh NGDC qualifier in the Greek capital was settled in the end by Pixel Reign and their game Robbie Swifthand and the Orb of Mysteries, a mind-bending, hardcore 2D platformer.
A big congrats to Pixel Reign and see you in Malmö at Nordic Game 2019! And a warm thank you to the organisers of the Athens Games Festival for hosting the NGDC again this year.
