The sixth season of the Nordic Game Discovery Contest came to a rousing close this November with a Baltic finale during the Game Wave Festival in Tallinn, Estonia.
Tallinn, Estonia – December 21, 2022 – Everdream Valley, developed by a Polish developer Mooneaters, outshined their on-stage competitors and won the Game of the Year title at this year’s NGDC Season VI Grand Finals at Game Wave Festival! The beautiful game brings a nostalgic feeling of childhood adventures on the grandparents’ farm and helps you relive the times when the summer holidays were an amazing adventure!
“We love working on Everdream Valley because we are creating a beautiful and magical world based on our childhood memories and adventures. We bring to life the sounds and sights of the Polish (and not only) countryside. However, it’s still hard work that we have been doing continuously for more than two years. That’s why it’s a great feeling to be appreciated for it. We want Everdream Valley to grow with us and with the community. This award makes our motivation to achieve this even stronger. Thank you for that!” says Marek Maruszczak – CEO at Mooneaters.
