Two games from Plug In Digital’s publishing label, Dear Villagers, have been nominated for a prestigious Pegase Trophy: Edge Of Eternity by Midgar Studio and The Forgotten City by Modern Storyteller appeared in five categories, featuring the work of our teams and partner studios.
The Forgotten City awarded as Best International Video Game

An undeniable reward and encouragement for all video game enthusiasts. Guillaume, Head of Publishing, took the floor:
