Welcome to the 2018 edition of the Nordic Game Awards!

Press release:
A highlight of Nordic Game 2018 in Malmö, Sweden on 23-25 May, the award show this year takes place in the Unreal Theatre, the main auditorium of Slagthuset, on 24 May at 18:00. And it’s sponsored by our dear friends at Epic/Unreal.

Host of the show will be Elie Abraham – composer, sound designer, voice actor and unyielding game jammer. Elie is known for speed-making music and holds the world record for number of games sound-tracked at a single game jam.
