For the first time ever, 15 studios from 15 countries will battle to be crowned the first EuroPlay champion!
Ukie, the association for UK interactive entertainment, has united with trade associations like FLEGA (Flemish) GDACZ, (Czechia), GIC (Poland), RGDA (Romania), SGA (Serbia), IGEA (Australia), Pro Helvetia (Switzerland) and the Latvian game association to launch The EuroPlay Games Contest this summer.
Taking place on Friday 28 August during Gamescom and hosted by Mr Midas, EuroPlay will show the best unreleased games from across Europe in a live showcase on Twitch in a Eurovision-style contest.
Finalists will be selected by each nation’s association or trade body to represent their nation in the competition. Developers who make it to EuroPlay will then have the chance to show off their game in the form of a short trailer. Once all the entries have been broadcast, a public vote will be conducted on Twitter to crown the inaugural EuroPlay Contest champion. During the contest, journalists, influencers and publishers will have a chance to meet the teams behind each competing game during a dedicated video-conference call.
Competing for Switzerland, «Team : Cars» by Caustique Games is a racing, car combat game. The game is currently part of our SwissGames Showcase mentoring programme and has also been listed finalist for 2020 GDC Pitch.
