(Malmö, Sweden – 18 November 2020) The Season IV Grand Finals of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest (NGDC) will take place at the upcoming Nordic Game conference on 25-27 November. The finals mark the conclusion of the NGDC’s fourth season, with talented game developers battling in fierce but fun pitching contests at NGDC partner events all over the world since last June. On 27 November, one of the 17 finalists will claim victory as the winner of the prestigious NGDC Game of the Year award.

“The talent pool of the NGDC Season IV finalists is the deepest and most diverse we’ve seen in NGDC history,” says NGDC host and organiser Jacob Riis. “It will be very exciting to follow each of them in the final stretch during NG20+ as they battle for top honors – a lot like watching a world cup for game dev talent.”
