African game “The Endless Wyrd” is the first to qualify for The Nordic Game Discovery Contest 2021!
In this dice-based, deck-building, roguelike adventure, scavenge the Wyrd and escape the approaching Thing of the Dark. Load your dice with powerful augments to create your own synergies and combos and stack the odds in your favour. In the rabbit hole of the Wyrd, the only way back up, is down.
Produced in South Africa, “The Endless Wyrd” recently won the first qualification round of the NGDC Season V, which took place during Africa Games Week in Cape Town in early December and have therefore qualified for the big Nordic Game Discovery Contest this coming summer in Sweden!
“To us, The Endless Wyrd is the quest for the stupidly overpowered and we can’t wait for players to uncover the ridiculously overpowered synergies and combinations that we have in store”, says Janke van Jaarsveld, CEO of Design Imps, “We are also very proud of the game’s South African roots, boasting the unique comic art style of Willem Samuel, who’s band, SkreeAlleen, incidentally also lent their talents to the soundtrack.”
“The Endless Wyrd” is scheduled for Early Access release in Q3 of 2021 and an early Alpha demo is currently available on Steam. “At Design Imps we are committed to the concept of “Together we can make it better”. It was the reason we implemented an easy to use modding system for Fhtagn! – Tales of the Creeping Madness and the reason we want to have Early Access. We believe that with the input of players we can make this game amazing!”, says Janke.

About Design Imps
Design Imps was founded in 2010 by Janke and Ilana van Jaarsveld as a bootstrapping Indie Studio in Pretoria, South Africa. Through the help of friends and family and after years of paper prototypes and double jobs, the company finally started development of their first title The Creeping Madness, in 2017. To keep the project alive, focus was shifted in 2018 to create Fhtagn! Tales of the Creeping Madness, in order to secure much needed funds. The team decided to place a hold on The Creeping Madness in 2019, till the studio could grow more in size and experience and so The Endless Wyrd was born and production on this dice-based roguelite deckbuilder is scheduled to enter the Early Access phase in Q3 of 2021.
