Games Germany – Regional Funds and Networks bietet allen Gamesschaffenden Informationen zur Förderung und Finanzierung sowie zu Entwicklungs-, Produktionsbedingungen und zu Publishing in Deutschland. Darüber hinaus unterstützt Games Germany – Regional Funds and Networks die deutsche Gamesindustrie bei ihrem Auftritt auf den großen nationalen und internationalen Messen. Angelehnt ist das zugrundeliegende Modell an Focus Germany, der Dachorganisation der acht Länderfilmförderungen in Deutschland.

Der erste Auftritt von Games Germany - Regional Funds and Networks findet am 17. Mai 2017 auf den Nordic Games in Malmö statt. Bei einem Empfang präsentieren sich Vertreter der zwölf Institutionen und stellen die Dachorganisation vor. Die Games Germany Reception findet am 17. Mai 2017 von 18 bis 20 Uhr statt.
