Goethe-Institut Boston flies Hitchhiker to PAX EAST Boston. Game will be exhibited with other Indie Games on German Booth.
Zürich, Switzerland – 13 December 2017 – A short list of 18 games have today been announced for the Ludicious Awards 2018. The list highlights the very best creative talent from a diverse selection of international studios and student developer teams. The nominees all hope to win a share of the impressive 12’000 EUR offered in collective prize money.
“263 games from 47 countries were submitted to the competition this year,” said the festival’s Artistic and Conference Director Tobias Kopka. “What we asked for, and found, are the most exciting, creative and original new games on any platform. In particular this year, we encouraged developers to submit projects which contain a strong innovative aspect. This could be in any area; from the game mechanic through to the narrative, or even business model.” ”
We’re happy to announce a new partner on our latest adventure: Humble Bundle will support the production of Hitchhiker. The first episode of Hitchhiker will be released as a Humble Original in late 2017 or early 2018. Keep your eyes peeled and be sure to pick up Hitchhiker.
