Indie Prize and Casual Connect are returning to Kyiv in Ukraine this month! Here are a few of the finalists that will compete in Indie Prize from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Belarus, Russia and Moldova.
The participant in Indie Prize at Casual Connect Kyiv 2017 from Bosnia and Herzegovina is a puzzle adventure in a collapsing world. The player must face the worst things that can happen and still bring order to the world.
Game Title: The Enchanted World

The Enchanted World is a world torn asunder. The player, the hero of the game, is searching for his lost love. As he searches, he brings order back to the world, one puzzle piece at a time. The characters he meets along his way have all been impacted by the collapse of the world and represent the five stages of grief (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance). The characters help him overcome the obstacles he meets and he helps them find their place in the world.
The Enchanted World was selected for Stugan 2017. At Reboot Inforgamer 2016 it won the prize for best visuals and was nominated for best game play.
