Things are moving fast at BetaDwarf, the Danish-based company who last year won the “Best Game with 3D Graphics” award at Intel’s 2013 Level-Up competition for their debut title: “Forced“. Last week, the sequel to Forced, “Forced 2: The Rush“, won the exact same award at the 2014 edition of Intel’s competition for game developers.
Intel’s Level-Up contest started back in 2009, and is a contest primarily for games in the alpha/beta/proof-of-concept stages. Naturally so, in addition to cash prizes, part of the prize pool consists of a chance to be published on Steam – something that Forced 2: The Rush needs not worry about, since they can already be found on Valve’s Steam platform.
Just two weeks ago, we could announce that BetaDwarf was one among a series of 9 game developers from the Nordic who had received funding from the EU as part of their “Creative Europe” initiative. The Level-Up award from Intel thus seems to have arrived at BetaDwarf’s doorstep in the middle of a very interesting time for the very young company, who was founded in 2011.
