PADaWON

PADaWON award gave to the winner developer team the following pizes:

The winner of the second edition of PADaWON award was Hyperberry Games, with their game Otem’s Defiance.

“Defy religion, society and the odds in this dodge-and-shoot experience where you face “The Ringods”, abstract entities sitting at the center of a circular sacred arena, where you, a little boy called Otem, have been thrown as a sacrifice. Run around, learn the Ringods’ many different attack patterns, shoot them in their “Dogma” to vanquish them as they keep descending and stacking up. Get to the end of this shady and gruesome tradition enslaving the denizens of the incomprehensible land of Aterra.”

Congratulations to Hyperberry Games hope you enjoy your victory and we hope to see more of you in the future.
