Warshmallows wins NGDC qualifier in Malta


This past weekend Malta hosted the second Nordic Game Discovery Contest Season IV qualifier at Playcon, a new game-focused event at the annual tech industry DELTA Summit.

NGDC qualifier judges in Malta included Conrad Vassalo (MCAST director), Dave Hawkins (Exient CEO) and Dave Mariner (Karmafy), all contributing great questions and advice for the three contestants.

After a well-fought live pitch battle, Maltese studio Yourun won with Warshmallows, their 2D arena shooter for the Nintendo Switch.

Check out the gameplay video:

Big congratulations to Yourun for winning Season IV’s second NGDC qualifier and a huge thank you to the organisers of Playcon for their fantastic support and a great show.

See you at NG20 next May for the NGDC Season IV finalist expo and grand finals!
