Meet the Road to Hamburg Games Conference Indie Teams

With our "Road to program", we will bring five Hamburg-based indie developers and teams to the Hamburg Games Conference 2023 to showcase their games to the participants and meet new people from the industry. You can play their games at the Hamburg Games Conference expo from March 1 to 2 at the Altonaer Museum.

Only a few weeks are left until we can finally meet again at the Hamburg Games Conference on March 1-2. The program is fully packed and we cannot wait to engage in discussions with you and talk about the many topics around "Invest in Games".

For indie studios from Hamburg, we provided the program "Road to Hamburg Games Conference", which will give them a spot for showcasing their game in the Gamecity Hamburg expo area.

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.
