This is a press release directly from the industry, selected by our editorial team for its importance, that we are reposting in addition to our usual coverage.

Opening the conference with Unboxing NG20+, host and Nordic Game program director Jacob Riis, along with co-hosts and Sharkmob developers Sara Casén and Rasmus Kunstlicher, will guide the live audience through this week’s exciting (and extensive) speaker program, the many activities slated for the Nordic Game Discord channel, the new Chatroulette à la Nordic Game, the highly anticipated NGDC Season IV Grand Finals and much, much more.
