The Swiss Arts Council, the Neuchâtel Fantastic Film Festival (NIFFF) and FONDATION SUISA are proud to announce that the second «Call for Projects: Swiss Games» was very successful: 43 projects have been handed in. A quick look at these games shows that they are represented by a high diversity in terms of game types, used platforms and by their high quality. Their origin is also highly diverse, with games coming from independent studios as wells as from established institutions and producers. All linguistic regions of Switzerland are represented proportionally and the high participation of female developers is very good news.

From March 18th to 19th, a international Jury consisting of 5 experts will meet in Neuchâtel and selects the projects that will be supported in their development with grants up to CHF50’000. The award ceremony will be held in Neuchâtel on 9th of July during the symposium Imaging the Future organized by NIFFF. Subsequently, the games will be shown in a temporary exposition during the festival.

Liquidsketch, the new game of Tobias Neukom, is a  puzzle pushing the understanding of liquid mechanics in a funny and challenging way. The incredibly realistic real-time liquid simulation and the reactivity to gyroscope controls are some of the reasons that make this game a unique experience. They are for sure the main arguments to be nominated as a finalist at IGF 2013 for technical excellence. Good job Tobias!
