Our game Awakening of Heroes received the prestigious award at the just finished Casual Connect Eastern Europe 2014 gaming festival. According to the jury consisting of the eminent journalists, our game was ‘the Best in Show’ among the competition of 40 indie developers.
As a co-founder of COFA Games Studio, Nevena Jovanovic said, “THE BEST GAME IN SHOW” award by critic’s choice is a great encouragement for entire team. ‘We were hoping for an award in one of the categories, but the fact that we won the first one really surprised us! This is another proof that we are on a right track. We have traveled quite a lot in the past few months and our plan is now to focus on the development of the game as much as possible’, said Nevena.
