For the first time ever, Game Scope 2017 introduced the people’s choice award – honouring the best game at the Game Scope expo, as chosen by the visitors. Local developer ALL CAPS went with the 1st place, for their sweat breaking game – Disco Flip.
“The audience loved to move it to the disco beat, and that’s why Disco Flip took this year’s 1st place as the peoples’ choice at Game Scope 2017.”
Throughout the three-day Game Scope expo, visitors had the option to vote for their favourite game, by submitting tokens to their favourite games. The stakes were high, with a chance for eternal Game Scope glory and celebration among the peers, as well as the rights to adorn yourself with the official people’s choice badge of Game Scope 2017.
However, and much unknown to the indie talents participating at the expo, the stakes were further upped – due to a collaboration with Indie prize. Besides, from the honour of winning, Indieprize kindly sponsored the winners 2 all access passes and paid accommodation to Casual Connect in Kyiv 2017 where ALL CAPS will have a booth presenting the winning game Disco Flip. The partnership between Indieprize and Game Scope were announced on the final day of Game Scope – we hope to see many of our developers attend both Indie Prize and Casual Connect in the future.
With an expo that consisted of all kinds of genres and media, ranging from platformers, survival, puzzles, adventure, interactive narratives, 2d, 3d, mobile, console, pc, VR and much more, who should win? The choice was entirely up to the visitors, who were encouraged to play as many games as possible and vote for their favourite.
On Saturday the 19th of August, before closing down the expo and Game Scope 2017, the votes were counted and the winners announced on stage – by Game Scope coordinator and founder Thomas Lykke Larsen.
The winners were the local developer ALL CAPS with their upcoming game Disco Flip – you might have heard of their previous success Block Amok? Disco Flip is an endless runner game in which you steer your character through courses of different obstacles, all held in a geometrical style of squares moving to the disco beat. Sounds easy? Well, this game will definitely break a sweat as the game is operated via a dance mat– the audience loved to move it to the disco beat, and that’s why Disco Flip took this year’s 1st place as the peoples’ choice at Game Scope 2017.
A huge thanks goes out to all our visitors for testing so many great games and voting for your favourites. Also a huge congratulation to ALL CAPS, we look forward to seeing you take over Kyiv with your disco tunes.
Thanks for this year, we hope so see you all back in 2018
