The umbrella organisation Games Germany will work closely together with the
national associations BIU and GAME as well as other trade associations. In addition
to its national activities, Games Germany also regards itself as a platform for
the regional networks and funders. The idea of an amalgamation was first presented
at the 2016 German Developer Awards. Games Germany appeared at the
Nordic Games in Malmö in May 2017 during its foundation phase.

Games Germany @ Deutscher Entwicklerpreis

The Deutscher Entwicklerpreis (German Developer Award) 2016  was the first event where Games Germany became visible. At that time it was an idea of loose cooperation between regional networks, but we soon found out that including the funding institutions is the only thing making sense. Also it was decided that it has to be a bit more than that and that a name is needed.

Thereby the Deutscher Entwicklerpreis, its industry attendees and their feedback  greatly contributed to what Games Germany now is.
