On December, 6 the german gaming industry gathers in Cologne to honour the most successful and creative developers and publishers at Deutscher Entwicklerpreis 2017. We’re happy and proud to announce that CGL-students are nominated in two categories.
“Code 7 – Episode 1: Threading” by CGL-alumni Kevin Glaap & Zein Okko (Goodwolf Studio) is nominated in the category “Best Story”. Last year, they were nominated in the category ith the game’s predecessor “Episode 0: Allocation”. They also received a honorable mention at Independent Games Festival and the prize for the “Best Youth Game” at German Computer Game Award.
“Kyklos Code” is one of the finalists for the Blue Byte Newcomer Award. In “Kyklos Code”, the player dives into a program to defeat the virus by which it has been attacked. The virus sets back the player to his starting position every 10 seconds. The time between two resets is called a loop. During the game the player receives a device that enables him/ her to take other objects into the loop. He can toggle the looping state of objects and thereby solve puzzles. The goal of each level is to reach a new reset point.
Last year, the students’ team of “Isometric Epilepsy” won the 3rd prize in the same category!
In the run-up to the award ceremony the „Entwicklerpreis Summit“ will take place at KOMED / MediaPark Köln. deutscherentwicklerpreis.de
