It has been a successful night for Phantom 8 Studio and their game PAST CURE at Game Connection Europe in Paris. The action stealth thriller won the open vote against 22 other contestants, and received the People’s Choice Award. PAST CURE is currently being developed by an international team of eight and will be released worldwide for PC and console on February 2, 2018.
“The team is extremely happy to win the People’s Choice Award. Most of all, we are very proud that such a small team has created a game that receives so much recognition from gamers, even before its release,” Simon Gerdesmann, Managing Director at Phantom 8 Studio, explains. “It also strengthens our decision to move the release of PAST CURE to February 2018, in order to further enhance the quality of the game. As a studio we are definitely on the right track.”
Not the First Award for the Up-and-Coming Indie Studio
The awards received at Game Connection are not the first honors for the Berlin-based indie studio. Just a few weeks ago, PAST CURE won the award for Best Storytelling at White Nights Moscow, the renowned developers’ conference. It was also nominated for the gamescom Indie Award earlier this year. This means that Phantom 8 has picked up the first laurels for its debut game well in advance of its release.
PAST CURE will be released worldwide on February 2, 2018 on PLAYSTATION 4, Xbox One and PC for €29.99/$29.99.
