The things we don’t say

by

DAGMARAKUCINSKA

“Truly out of the box thinking with good understanding of pacing and the power of telling the story visually through reactions without relying on dialog. It worked on all levels: Storytelling, technical craftsmanship, humor and creativity. We’re stoked for the winner”

Signals

GABRIELFLORES

“I loved the concept of making the relationship between Mark and Gemma play out like a dance. The back and forth between their looks mirrored the courting ritual of a tango to me. And it came full “circle". It also gave me a whole new perspective on the scene. ”

The Ever After

by

KyleCrawford

“I do like the music and the way it plays diegetically in the background. I also love how the game itself is brought in at the end as a flashback by Mark to explain his awkward and confused state of mind. ”
