Insights into the Games Lift Incubator program and guest presentation on games crowdfunding: "Crowdfunding for Game Developers"

In 2020, Gamecity Hamburg first launched the Games Lift Incubator: Games Lift supports developer teams in creating and refining concepts for digital games. Up to five teams are supported per year. During a three months long intensive program, the teams receive financing of up to € 15,000, a workshop and mentoring program by experienced industry professionals as well as office desks in a co-working facility. The application phase for this year’s Games Lift Incubator will open shortly.

This event provides insights into the Incubator program: Gamecity project manager Maggie Schneider will provide an overview of what Games Lift offers. In addition, the event presents one of last year’s favourite workshops with a very experienced industry professional:

As Co-Founder and Creative Director of KING Art Games, Jan Theysen has not only shipped more than 50 games and collected numerous awards (e.g. “Best Studio” at Deutscher Entwicklerpreis 2020) during his career, he and his team also ran several highly successful crowdfunding campaigns. Their last campaign for “Iron Harvest” collected more than 1.5 Million Euros.

In this talk, Jan will share his experience regarding the advantages, requirements and pitfalls a Kickstarter campaign entails as well as answer your questions – just like he did as a mentor in the Games Lift program last year.

This online workshop is primarily directed at game developers who want to apply for the Games Lift Incubator. Registrations by these developers will be prioritized for this workshop. In addition, as long as tickets are available, all participants interested in the workshop topic are welcome. After the presentations, there will be sufficient time to answer individual questions from the participants.

  • 4.00 pm – Welcome
  • 4.05 pm – Introduction to the Games Lift Incubator
  • 4.20 pm – Crowdfunding for Game Developers
  • 5.00 pm – Q&A and open discussion
