Out for the Young Wild Ones

At the Best of Swiss App Awards, the projects of large companies are joined by more "playful", fresh applications. Marco Krapf's game "Cave Zen" won the gold medal in the Young & Wild category. This category was judged for the last time, as it will no longer exist as of next year. The app industry has grown up, the environment has changed a lot, so this category will no longer be necessary in the future, according to the organizers. However, playfulness will continue to be judged. This year, the winner in the Games category is Late Shift. The game is actually an interactive film developed by CtrlMovie, together with Dreipol and Martin Hering.
