Daedalic functions primarily as a storyteller and in Edna & Harvey: Harvey’s New Eyes discerning entertainment and classic game design comes together. This recipe for success, we will continue next year. In 2010 we were four-time winner at the German Developer Award and the yield will hopefully increase again next year.
