‘Still Here’ for iOS and Android feels like a relaxing morning stroll, it’s a 2D flight game set in beautiful dystopian world with lots of secrets for you to uncover.
Players control curious little creatures called ‘Pip’ who visit places of natural beauty while helping and befriending artificial life. Set in a dystopian future on our earth: Could the Pips uncover what happened and why there seem to be no humans around?
Still Here is built on a unique core-principle: the game is made to help you feel relaxed and calm while seducing playful discovery. Most casual titles tend to satisfy more traditional forms of play like empowerment, competition, farming and caring.
The colourful nature-rich landscapes and their cute ‘Pip’ inhabitants might suggest the world of Still Here is a happy one. On the contrary: Still Here tells a serious story about a carefree society whose faith in technology might have caused their downfall.
‘Still Here’ is available as ‘Early Access’ game for Android and will be available in the iOS App Store and Google Playstore in late 2017.
Best Music & Audio The sound and music of Still Here aims to ease the player, as well as to invoke a feeling of adventure. How to describe it other then just suggesting you'd give it a listen? Players have said it's iconic and unique to mobile games. Some even shared that they sometimes start the game, just to listen to the music. The sound and music are handcrafted with love by Ramon Kerstens and Arjen Schut.

Best Co-Production Still Here is a collaboration between David Smit and Emiel Kampen (Prrrpl). David set out three and a half years ago to create a game whose artistic vision would not be lost during the production process. While already possessing the qualities of a senior Artist, he set out to learn how to code his game in Unity. He approached Emiel Kampen in 2016 when they met at the AMAZE Games& arts festival in Berlin. Emiel had just finished his first solo-project 'Should Shoot' and was ready for a new challenge as an independent developer. The two developers share a long-distance developer-relation: David is operating from his home in Berlin while Emiel operates from his hometown Haarlem. The two communicate at least twice a day, sharing screens and files before they once in a while meet either in the Netherlands or Germany.
