Swiss Games taking off at GDC

March 2, 2016

Thrilled by the success of Swiss games at the Game Developers Conference 2015, the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia, swissnex San Francisco and the Swiss Business Hub are ramping up this year’s Swiss presence at the world’s most important professional gaming conference. Thirteen talented studios are flying to San Francisco in March to present their newest works at Game Connection and GDC 2016.

Two Swiss studios are among the eight winners of the Best in Play award program for exhibitors: Somniacs with Birdly, and Mr. Whale’s Game Service with Schlicht.

Swiss Games are also nominated for two Development Awards at this year’s Game Connection America and two International Mobile Game Award. The recognition of Swiss Games this year and the success of Swiss VR highlights the talent and creativity of the Swiss videogaming industry. Bravo!
