While 117 entries with excellence challenged for 2018 NCM OPEN CALL. there were projects that could not be nominated much to our regret. <Waterpark Escape>, a single-person project developed by a high school student in Jeju, was well received for its fresh idea and detailed game design. <Where the wild things are> by Team Carol was favorably regarded with its original art design.
