Join us for the final presentation of the five promising games projects of Gamecity Hamburg's Games Lift Incubator 2023.
With its incubator program Games Lift, Gamecity Hamburg supports up-and-coming game developers in deepening their skills in relevant fields of the games industry as well as further developing their game ideas and projects. Since September 2023, five dev teams from Hamburg have been taking part in a three months long comprehensive workshop program, received start-up financing of 15,000 euros as well as office space in the new SPACE
Supported by a group of dedicated industry professionals acting as their coaches, mentors and networking contacts, the teams have been working on their projects, refining their visions, and setting out strategies for bringing their games to the market.
Now it's time for them to publicly present the games they are developing and the progress they made on their projects!
We celebrate their successful journey through the Games Lift Incubator program together with a public pitching event at the Design Zentrum in Hamburg that will also be streamed live. Each team will present their game in its current state and give an outlook into their future plans.
After the presentations, we'll have a get-together with the Games Lift teams and all on-site guests of the Games Lift Graduation at the Design Zentrum. A big thanks to AWS for Games and Photon, who are supporting this event.
