The 10 best IGF 2018 Trailers

Today is a holiday in Germany and I spend most of the day watching the trailers of all of the IGF (=Independent Game Festival) trailers. This year there were 512  game submissions with trailers to the competition, so this took quite a long time and now I’m sick and tiered of ever watching footage of…

Global Game Jam 2017

I’m very glad that I managed to participate at this year’s Global Game Jam in Ansbach. The company Tradabyte did a great job hosting the game jam and I got to try out the HTC Vive, which was a very memorable experience. But first of all I worked with an awesome team and we made a fun…

Ludum Dare 28

Ludum Dare is the worldwide biggest gamejam. People from around the world develop games from scratch this weekend, this time based on the theme “You Only Get One”.
