Nordic Game Discovery Contest Finals, NG18

NGDC Finals & Finalist Expo flashback
Sixteen games by very talented teams from across Europe qualified for Season III’s Nordic Game Discovery Contest Finals at NG19.

From last 22-23 May, the NGDC Finalist Expo was where the qualifier winners competed for a spot in the NGDC Final Four. Over two days, a secret panel of judges visited the finalist booths, with the exhibitors tasked to convince them (and visiting NG19 attendees) that their game was best.

The NGDC Finals took place last Friday, 24 May from 15:00 in the Unreal Theatre. The NGDC Final Four battled live on stage before a jury of industry veterans, led by games legend Warren Spector.

All NG19 attendees also received a NGDC Finalist Expo ballot when they picked up their conference badge, with the most popular title receiving the NGDC Season III People’s Choice Award last Friday, 24 May during the final wrap-up session of NG19.
