What is Nordic Games Discovery Contest?
NGDC is an exciting, competitive challenge where selected game projects are showcased at live-pitch events in several countries.
How does it work?
NGDC partners with games industry conferences across Europe throughout the year to discover the most promising games with the best potential for becoming global hits. Winners from each event will go on to compete for “Game of the Year” in the NGDC Finals at Nordic Game 2019, in Malmö, Sweden.
Developers, why should you participate?
With a continuously growing number of new titles released each year, the competition to get noticed is harder than ever. Joining the NGDC gives you a chance to get your game discovered. Just by submitting your game to the contest, a string of experts – publishers, investors, journalists, prominent game designers and other industry profiles – will see your work and, if your team is chosen to pitch live on stage, you’ll be sure to attract the attention of industry professionals in the audience as well.
On stage, you will pitch your game in front of the audience as well as a panel of experts. After your pitch, the jury will ask questions and provide feedback about your game. Winning the competition takes you to the NGDC Finals at NG19 next May. If you take the final “Game of the Year” award in Malmö, you’ll also win some nice prizes and extend your visibility globally.
What can you expect at GIC?
Nordic Games Discovery Contest will be held on Thursday, October 11th.
