We are nominated for the German Computer Games Awards!

Exciting news, fellow explorers!

We have a really big and thrilling announcement for you today! Passing By is nominated for The German Computer Games Awards in the category Young Talent Award: Best Prototype!

We are delighted, excited, surprised, honoured, touched, and – above all – immensely grateful.

Passing By has been a labour of love for all of us, and we wouldn't have come this far without many helping hands at our side. A big thank you goes to our composer Michael Hochmuth, our translators, testers, and everyone else who has supported us on this journey through helpful feedback and encouraging words (and the occasional coffee break).

Last but not least, we also want to thank all of you, who have taken the time and embarked on your own journey through the world of Passing By. Your kind words, bug reports and countless comments have been a huge motivation and kept us going over the last months since the game's release.

If you want to keep up to date with our plans for the future and the outcome of the award ceremony, remember to follow us here on itch. And if you're interested in the full list of categories and nominees, you can find them in the official press statement (German) or in this article (English).

"The journey is its own reward. May your burner always warm you and the west wind ever favour you!"
