RPG Project Scoundrels takes home top prize at the PC Indie Pitch at PGC Helsinki

Random Potion’s procedurally generated dungeon crawler Project Scoundrels swept up the judges' votes to grab the top prize at the PC Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2018.

For those not in the know, the PC Indie Pitch is a regular event run by the makers of PCGamesInsider.biz. It gives indie developers the chance to pitch their games to industry experts and journalists in a speed-dating-style format.

Teams get the opportunity to get valuable feedback on their games, as well as win great prizes such as promotional packages and, more importantly, the coveted PC Indie Pitch bat.

1. Project Scoundrels

Taksing top spot at this year’s Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki was Random Potion’s superb cooperative RPG Project Scoundrels. Described as a blend of Baldur’s Gate, Vermintide and roguelikes, players get to explore procedurally generated dungeons, defeat the monsters that lurk within, all the while completing the personal quests of the title’s colourful cast of characters.

2. Kingshunt

In second place was the ambitious Kingshunt by Vaki Games. The 5v5 third-person MOBA-esque fantasy-themed title harnesses Improbable’s SpatialOS technology to enable huge battles, with up to 100 players fighting concurrently in the same world, competing in their own battles. But while they fight, players can also affect the outcomes of other battles.

3. Veterans Online

Polysmart took third place at the PC Indie Pitch with Veterans Online, a top-down free-to-play shooter, packed full of fast-paced chaotic action. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg, players can make a whole raft of customisations to their characters - each of whom has their own stories to tell.
