Amersfoort (Nov. 13, 2009) - NyxQuest: Kindred Spirits, published by Madrid-based indie developers "Over the Top Games", wins the Best Euro Game category at the Dutch Game Awards.
The Dutch Game Awards are an aknowledgement of the creativity, expertise and business achievements of young Game Developers. This award represents a very important step for "Over the Top Games".
NyxQuest is the first game by this company. Without big resources, but a lot of passion and illusion, the four friends that form the studio managed to develop a game that provides a unique and original gameplay experience for WiiWare™ players. NyxQuest plunges its players into the fantastic epicentre of the beautiful story of Nyx and Icarus. Using the Wii Remote, the player is able to help its character with several divine powers to move obstacles, control the winds and shoot rays at the screen. The game is available since June through WiiWare, the Wii™ online store.
Earlier in the evening, several trophies were handed out at the Dutch Game Awards to games like Killzone 2 and Swords and Soldiers. Recognized game developer Peter Molyneux was an honor guest at the ceremony and handed out some of the awards.
