Google Play best of 2017
Earlier this month Google released their best of 2017 list and we were quite surprised that Miracle Merchant, our solitaire style potion brewing game, was picked as one of the best indie games of 2017 on Google Play.
Besides the fact that the featuring is actually quite hidden in a few sub menus of the Google Play home page we could see quite a big increase in download and revenue which you can see here:
We are very happy about the nomination and want to thank the editorial team at Google Play for picking our little game!
German Developer Awards
On the 6th of December the German Developer Awards, which are different from the German Videogames Awards, were held in Cologne. Card Thief was nominated for Best Gamedesign and since i hadn’t time to personally be there i sent Max and Oliver to represent our team. Since both of them felt kind of lonely with out me they decided to take me with them, this is how it looked:
We really weren’t anticipating it but Card Thief ended up winning. I was quite sure that we wouldn’t have a chance because Card Thief is quite different and does a few things new that are hard to learn and might be overlooked in a small jury that has a limited amount of time to look at each game. This is why we are super happy that the jury actually saw through the difficulty and could appreciate the design of the game. Here are a few offical shots done by Jennifer Pitton.
