Kvasir Games wins the 10K prize for their NGJ game
Back in January during Nordic Game Jam 2013 (and again in a blog post on the NGJ website) we announced a contest to win 10.000 DKK for those who managed to publish and sell their jam games.
Today we were pleased to announce at the w00t Copenhagen Play Festival the winners of the contest.
Out of all the entries we got, Kvasir Games with their board game Wanted: Igor, got the prize after managing to produce and sell copies of the game. Wanted: Igor received the award for “Best Sellable Game” during that year’s Nordic Game Jam. In it, up to 5 players have to build a Frankenstein-inspired monster by collecting cards.
The group got their first hands-on making board games together during Nordic Game Jam in 2012, where they created Mussades, an Arabian-themed race-to-the-finish game which won them the Best Board Game Award and the Jury’s Choice Award from David McCarthy of GREE.
The recently-established company is looking to further push distribution of both their games in stores. “We want to put Mussades on Kickstarter and we aim to have both games on shelves in stores as soon as possible“, said Simon Cutajar, co-founder of the company.
From IGDA Denmark and Nordic Game Jam we want to give the entire group a big congratulations and we hope they will continue producing board games in the future.
