Indie Developers from Switzerland, Latvia and United Kingdom Coming to Indie Prize

October 6, 2017 — by Catherine Quinton

Switzerland is being represented by two participants in Indie Prize Kyiv during Casual Connect Kyiv. One explores the possibilities of the VR headset. The other offers game choices leading to many different outcomes.

Game Title: Devader
Developer: Falkenbrew
Platform: Desktop Win
Website: http://www.falkenbrew.com

Your civilization is dying. The relentless invaders known as the Krim will soon take over. But you, the Devader, will be the one to make a difference. This game has multiple endings depending on the choices you make. It has 42 waves and every 6 waves you must fight a new boss. If you are successful you can upgrade your robot and a new mechanic is added, such as nukes or turrets. There are 12 different upgrade paths; each will alter the robot, play style and outcome.

Devader was nominated for Indie Prize by the Geneva Gaming Convention (an Indie Prize Partner event).

Game Title: Meantime R
Developer: Alu’Alu
Platform: VR Mobile
Website: http://meantimegame.ch/

MeantimeVR is an engaging virtual reality adventure game in which the player uncovers many different stories. Game play is through intuitive and natural interaction. MeantimeVR explores the limits of input provided by the VR headset alone; the fact that the player doesn’t move prevents motion sickness.

MeantimeVR has been nominated for several awards including Most Innovative Game and Best VR Game at Indie Prize Geneva and Best Sound by AZPlay.




One of United Kingdom’s participants for Indie Prize at Casual Connect Kyiv 2017 is quite a departure from the more common, shooter, horror-filled, frantically moving episodes. Instead it invites you to slow down and consider your place in the world. The other game offers all the rapid movement, change and excitement that many players desire.

Game Title: Where The Goats Are
Developer: Memory of God
Platform: Desktop Win
Website: https://memoryofgod.itch.io/

Game Title: Rocket Rumble
Developer: Small Jelly

Website: smalljelly.com




Rocket Rumble is filled with fast-paced space battles in a colorful world. The multi-player PVP games are simple to learn but grow into deep tactical experiences. The battlefield changes constantly; the player can use cards to customize ships, weapons and defences and learn to position pieces wisely. New cards are added regularly.

Rocket Rumble was part of the Indie Showcase at Develop Conference 2017 and was nominated for the Women in Games Award.

Lativia has two participants in Indie Prize for the Kyiv event. Each revolves around the story of a character, but the characters are completely different. One is a confused young person and the other a great hero. However, both meet with the unexpected.
