Viberift was nominated for most anticipated game of the year on the recent Bulgarian Game Awards that took place last week. We didn't win an award but that may be for the best. Instead of drooling infront of an award we could actually take the time to be productive and maybe release Viberift?
Well, the game is not coming out until at least Autumn, 2017 and because of that we decided to make a video and tell the story of Viberift's development through the years. You'll see that we haven't just been lazy all that time but rather have made stupid decisions. Which, de facto, is even worse but...positive thoughts, positive thoughts!

In honor of Viberift reaching TOP5, we made a short deathmatch video in which my colleagues and I engage into music-driven battle. Before I was bragging about how I'm the best Viberift player in the whole world but I'm not so sure about that anymore:
