ROFLPillar Up For A.Maze Top Gong Shock

ROFLPillar, Lucky Frame’s floor-crawling physical video game which challenges players to writhe and twist and slither, has been nominated for an award at Berlin’s A MAZE festival.

Unlike many other awards, which reward commercial success, A MAZE goes it’s own way. In 2014, the awards will have four categories: with the additional three awards A MAZE. wants to celebrate games that usually don’t get recognition at festivals.

The international jury has to select the winners of the following categories:

* The Most Amazing Game Award (3000€)

This award goes to the best game overall – in terms of game play, art, innovation, music, story and interaction. The prize is dedicated to the masterpiece of the selection. Basically, it is the continuation of the previous A MAZE. Award.

* Human Human Machine Award (1000€)

This award goes to the best game that can be played by two or more people in the same room (local multiplayer), and includes some digital element – fully analog games won’t be accepted.

* WTF! Award (1000€)

In 2014 A MAZE. will establish an award for games that transport no compromises, reckless art, subversive fun and provoking progression. This award is looking for the best glitch, punk and art games.

In addition to the three awards above, in 2014 an Audience Award will also be introduced. The winner will be voted by the spectators during the course of the festival.

The awards will be handed out at the A MAZE event in April. We shall, of course, keep you posted. In the mean time, congratulations and the very best of luck to Lucky Frame on another awesome nomination for another awesome game.
