Since its first release on August 24, 2021, Hoa has quickly achieved success beyond the expectations of studio Skrollcat. Not only stopping in the country, the heat of Hoa has spread throughout Steam with 91% positive reviews and proudly entered the top of Steam’s best games in 2021. At that time, the famous newspaper IGN also cost nothing. little ink and paper to praise this pure Vietnamese game. “Flowers are like a warm bubble bath for your brain, with almost every element of its experience designed to soothe the soul and provide the most peaceful entertainment experience” (Tristan IGN’s Ogilvie).
And recently Hoa has won two prestigious positions in two different categories at the Webby Awards – the Internet’s Oscars ceremony. This is because this award was created to honor outstanding achievements on the Internet from social content, applications, games, etc.
Currently, the game Hoa is nominated in two categories Best Music/Sound Design (Best Music/Sound Design) and Best Art Direction (Best Art Direction).
For those who have experienced Hoa, they certainly feel that these two categories are extremely suitable for this game. Possessing a simple and gentle gameplay, what brings Hoa to success is the storytelling arts that Skrollcat has cleverly integrated throughout the gameplay. Along with that is the gentle, melodious sound that immerses the player in the fanciful world that Hoa brings.
In the Best Art Direction category, Hoa will compete with titles: No Longer Home, Lost in Random, Wayfinder and Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition.
In the category of Best Music/Sound Design, Hoa will compete with the following products: LEGO® Star Wars™: Castaways; IGN25:The Game; Warframe and Rachet & Clark: Rift Apart.
The good news for us is that at the moment, Hoa is leading the two categories above with overwhelming votes.
With what has been achieved, Hoa deserves the praise of international friends as well as the domestic gaming community. It can be said that the Vietnamese game village has never had such an excellent product. Standing on the factors of content quality as well as the experience value of the game, whether Flappy Bird or recently Axie Infinity can hardly be compared with Hoa. This game has made remarkable strides to gradually close the gap between the Vietnamese game industry and world friends.
