Arthouse games and playful media showcase Amaze Fest has revealed the noms for its annual awards ceremony.

Amaze Fest, the arthouse games and playful media festival held in Berlin, has announced the nominees for the 11th annual Amaze Awards.

According to festival organisers, there were 189 submissions from 51 countries this year, but the final list of nominees has been whittled down to 25 projects including Sable, Norco, Tux and Fanny, and How to Say Goodbye.
