Gamescom revisited

29.08.2018 | 

Hi all,

it was a great gamescom in Cologne last week, wasn´t it?
We loved being there and having great meetings with all of you, whether you are German Games industry or from abroad.
Hopefully our efforts with the Made in Germany Area in hall 3.2 were of help to you to be more easily found, if you are Geman or to find the Germans, if you are from abroad.

Same goes for our schedule, giving you an overview what will happen when and wher in that area.
One thing we were asked about often was the Bobby Car Race, so here is the quick story:
Thursday in the afternoon things slow down a bit in the business area and we thought we could spice things up a bit. By racing through the hall. On toy cars for kids.
Each booth in the Made in Germany Area nominated one driver for that race.
Porsche sponsored us the race cars.
And we didn´t just do it for the fun of it:
The winning Porsche car will be autioned off by Gamind-Aid at the Deutscher Entwicklerpreis 2018.

If you don´t know Gaming-Aid, check them out here
There will be a clip of the race coming up soon, and some pictures on facebook.
So check it out, if you missed it live.

And already put it in your diary for next year.
It was fun to race and as we were told also fun to watch.
And even more so, as it is for charity.
