Nominations Revealed For Nordic Game Awards 2012

Nordic Game Awards 2012

The organizers behind the Nordic Game Awards have announced the long list of nominations for this year’s show, as usual we highlight the indie titles who made the line-up.

Always celebrating one of the most creative and interesting parts of the gaming industry, the Nordic Game Awards are creeping up on us yet again. The 2012 awards ceremony will be held on May 24th in Malmö of Sweden, which is where the winners of the six award categories will claim their victory and hopefully acknowledge the great competition they were lined up with. It’s not too late to be part of the Nordic Game Awards as you can register on the official site, do it before April 20th for the early bird discount.

Of course, the Nordic Game Awards don’t just acknowledge the indie games, titles like Battlefield 3 and Renegade Ops are part of this too. What we’ll do is list them but won’t provide links in a stubborn little way – it’s nice to see what the indie titles are going up against too! So here’s this year’s nominations – remember, if it’s linked then we consider it indie.
