The Swedish Game Awards (http://gameawards NULL.se/) are going to have their Kickoff (http://gameawards NULL.se/news/kickoff-2011/) at Kulturhuset in Stockholm the upcoming Monday (11th)!
Robin will be there talking about our hyper-iterative development cycle, and how we managed to get our product signed by a publisher in such short time. Also, you’ll be able to listen to past SGA-winners, like Magicka (Arrowhead Game Studios) and Bloodline Champions (Stunlock Studios)!
If you happen to be in Sweden on Monday (and why wouldn’t you?), be sure to stop by! You’ll be able to play Dwarfs and get free backrubs from Robin!
Good news, everyone! Dwarfs has been nominated for Best Execution in the Swedish Game Awards (http://gameawards NULL.se/)! The winners will be revealed at the Game Day Expo, June 12 at Försvarshögskolan in Stockholm, which is FREE to attend! So there’s no excuse for not showing up!
Looking at the competition (http://gameawards NULL.se/news/nominees-the-best-of-indie-development/), we’re probably pretty screwed… haha. Sanctum (http://gameawards NULL.se/competition_entries/468) and Testament (http://gameawards NULL.se/competition_entries/523) (a christian game where you play as an angel chopping people up for Jesus) are two games that is looking especially good.
For our first game, not even six months into production, I’d say getting nominated is quite a feat in itself! After all, we’ve already won free lunch!
