Vlambeers' Rami Ismail said that “it's great to still see such good response to the charms of arcade gaming and with all the positive feedback, we decided that IGF might be a good place for Super Crate Box to be. Entering the IGF means a lot to us, certainly with such fierce competition. We really hope the panel will appreciate the minimalistic design and excecution of the game.”
