Gamescom Retrospect

kunst-stoff at the Gamescom Cologne: This meant to give everything 20 hours a day! from 9 am to 7 pm we had meetings in our box at the  G.A.M.E. stand, shook many hands and talked with colleagues. In the evenings, we directly went from the fairground to the parties, where again we shook hands, talked – and had some beers.

On Saturday and Sunday, the gamescom visitors had the opportunity to play our game “The Great Jitters: Pudding Panic” on the stand of the SAE-Institute für media and game development studies. Many people took the opportunity and received a flyer with a discount code to buy the PC version of the game on Little Indie.
