Gamescom 2018: Daedalic feiert Jubiläum in Köln

Die Hamburger Entwickler und Publisher Daedalic besuchen nicht nur zum zehnten Mal die Gamescom, sondern haben auch die "Edna and Harvey: The Breakout - 10th Anniversary Edition" im Gepäck.

Anfang 2007 wurde Daedalic gegründet, im Juni des darauffolgenden Jahres erschien mit "Edna bricht aus" der erste Titel des noch jungen Hamburger Unternehmens, das sich seither den Ruf erarbeitet hat, das Grafik-Adventure-Erbe der LucasArts- und Sierra-Ära zu bewahren. 2009 debütierte Daedalic auf der Gamescom, die damals selbst ihre Premiere in den Kölner Messehallen feierte.

Zum zehnten Mal findet nun Europas größte Spielemesse statt, und auch Daedalic ist wieder mit von der Partie. 2018 werden die Hamburger erneut beide Bereiche der Messe bespielen. Im Business Center finden interessierte Besucher aus Business und Presse Daedalic in Halle 3.2, Stand A30/B39 - also auf dem Gamecity:Hamburg-Gemeinschaftsstand. Dort ist man für interessante Gespräche offen - die jeweiligen Kontaktpersonen finden sich auf der offiziellen Website.

Im Publikumsbereich gibt's für die vielen Anhänger der skurrilen Protagonisten der Daedalic-Spiele jede Menge Fanartikel am hauseigenen Merchandise-Stand in der Fanshop-Area der Halle 5.2.

Aber auch die wichtigsten aktuellen Titel werden von den Gamescom-Besuchern gespielt werden können. Die Indie Arena (Halle 10.1) bestückt Daedalic mit dem Hamburger Multiplayer-Spektakel "Witch It", dem futuristischen 3D-Thriller "State of Mind" in der Switch-Version sowie dem Publikums-Debüt von "Edna & Harvey: The Breakout - 10th Anniversary Edition" (einem Remake von "Edna bricht aus", das 2019 für PC, PS4, Xbox One und Switch kommt).

Gamecity Hamburg Prototype Funding 2024: Hamburg funds five prototypes of digital games

Gamecity Hamburg supports five game projects in the 2024 funding round as part of its Prototype Funding program. As early-stage funding for companies and start-ups based in Hamburg, the funding enables the development of prototypes of digital games with high market potential.

Job Spotlight: Bytro

Bytro is a well-established institution in the Hamburg games industry and the mobile and browser games market. Their first game, Supremacy 1914, will turn 15 years old in May of 2024. This is a rare milestone for any game, especially considering that this historic war strategy game might not exactly be a mainstream product. The key to running a successful company for a long time is, of course, the people. As Bytro is currently hiring, we spoke to Felix Schröter, the interim Lead for Analytics and Monetization. He has had many different opportunities at Bytro and gave us deeper insights into the company and their current job openings.
