Nordic Game Discovery Contest

Nordic Game Discovery Contest Season III

Building on fifteen years of organising successful games industry activities, including the annual Nordic Game conference and exhibition, regional funding programs, overseas networking events and other developer support initiatives, we introduced the Nordic Game Discovery Contest (NGDC) in 2016 – an exciting, competitive challenge where selected game projects are showcased live in pitch competitions at partner events across Europe.

Now in our third season, we’re introducing a new and unique contest format – instead of just pitching a game the traditional way, contestants compete live onstage in an entertaining round-based battle for points.

Submit your game

Contest format & rules:

A) The contestants chosen through the submission process will meet on-stage in a live contest, divided in to the following rounds:

Intro Round: Each contestant has to present themselves and their game.

Game Round: Each contestant has to answer questions from the judges about the presented game. These can be technical, about the gameplay, or even personal.
i. “What is most unique about your game”?
ii. “What are you inspired by”?
iii. “What part of yourself has been put into the game”?

To apply, complete the following application form and send it to us at Nordic Game

Deadline is 22 October!
