Norway Bags Two Awards at Casual Connect’s Indie Prize

Norway’s game developers managed to pick up two awards and two additional nominations at the Indie Prize awards that took place at the latest Casual Connect Conference in the Netherlands.


Norwegian game developers Sarapta and Moondrop both managed to secure an award at the Indie Prize awards, held during the recent Casual Connect game conference in Amsterdam.

MoonDrop took home the award for best audio for their game Amphora. A category where they were actually up against their fellow countrymen from Krillbite and their first person toddler-horror Among the Sleep. In addition, MoonDrop also had a nomination in the category for Best Art. The second Norwegian award went to Sarepta studio who picked up the Directors Award for their work on Shadow Puppeteer.


“We’re very honored to be chosen when we were up against so many other great games. Thanks to Kristian Brastein and Paal B. Solhaug for their work with the audio for Amphora,” MoonDrop commented on their Facebook page after the win. There, they also posted a link to the music of Amphora, so if you want to know how award-winning music sounds – here is your chance.

Amphora is available for pc, and can be found on the Steam Store here.



Sarepta commented on their win of the Directors Awards on their devblog, where they also posted pictures of the happy winners posing with their award.

Shadow Puppeteer has been in development since 2011 “for consoles and PC” and finally hit the pc marketplaces, including Steam, late last year. According to Sarepta, they are now working to bring the game to more platforms.16
