This year’s nominees for the SGDA Swiss Game Awards have been announced and our project "Visconti Castle of Locarno" has been nominated as "Serious Game" of the year!
An interdisciplinary jury has nominated nine games for the eighth edition. In addition to the five games in the entertainment games segment, four serious games were nominated in a separate category for the first time this year. This further development of the Swiss Game Awards shows the wide range of growing Swiss game creation.
The Swiss Industry Prize has been awarded since 2013 and this year will take place on Friday, November 12th, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Again this year, due to the epidemiological situation, the show will be broadcast as a live stream – from the NEP studios in Volketswil. This year the Swiss Game Awards Show is organized by the Swiss Game Developers Association (SGDA) with the new partner Zurich Game Show and takes place as part of the current “Gamesweek Zurich” – the new game festival in Zurich, which celebrates the breadth of the medium of games.
