Hectic arcade game Die Fish makes a splash at PG Connects Helsinki Very Big Indie Pitch

Wave 7 Games came out on top at the Very Big Indie Pitch at Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki 2016 for its hectic arcade game Die Fish.

Players are tasked with guiding a flock of piranhas through levels filled with perilous traps and obstacles.

Users must use the power of the group to solve puzzles in the game and bring them all back home safe. Though sometimes, a few piranhas may need to be sacrificed for the greater good.

In second place was Psyon Games for its casual strategy title Antidote.

In third spot was Immobile Games for Micro Machines-inspired racing game SkidStorm.

A big thanks to our sponsors Amazon Appstore, Chillingo and Gameforge.
