Casual Connect was an incredible success. Producers David Logan and Leif Dahl attended to showcase Whispering Willows. On day 1, David Logan spoke to attendees about the game’s development in a talk titled “Whispering Willows: Funded with Passion.” On day 2, Casual Connect held the Indie Prize Showcase where Whispering Willows was featured. It won “Best Story Award” and was a finalist for “Best Art” and “Best Desktop Game.”
