We won a “Juror’s Special Pick” award!!
I had to leave Nordic Game Jam before the votes were counted in the semifinals. Apparently we first made it to the finals and then were picked by the juror Thor Frølich (Graphics Designer and Ninja Extraordinaire from IO Interactive). He liked the simplicity - that the game had one core gameconcept chase and the simplistic graphical expression.
Apparently (I wasn't there, but Rasmus was) suddenly everybody could see the benefits in our simple game as opposed to the graphically superior games
