“All of us here at the A MAZE. Indie Connect are amazed about games that showcases innovation, subversion, progression and culture impact”, said by Thorsten S. Wiedemann, festival director. “The A MAZE. Indie Games Award reflects developers’ courage, taking risks and experimenting recklessly with the medium. They push forward gaming’s potential for intellectual and cultural-political exchange.”
