Apprien at the Finnish Game Awards – FGA`19

Apprien was honoured to participate the FGA 2019 gala at the Restaurant Bank in Helsinki last week.  The successful game industry of Finland celebrated and rewarded their best in the Finnish Game Awards organised 25.4  in Helsinki. The evening was full of great friends, cool companies and awards. I guess couple of the gem moments were the double victory by Supercell and the celebration of Bugbear’s comeback in a new prize category. The evening was splendid combination of music, entertainment, good food and drinks – these all are thanks for the gala sponsors and partners. It is also cool to see once a year the ever so laid back gaming community peeps putting on their best and glamours outfits for a one night 😉

A total of eight awards were presented in the gala. The Finnish Game of the Year 2018, Best Mobile Game, and Best Computer and Console Game were chosen by the members of the Finnish Game Developers’ Association.
