By inviting game developers and designers to attend Ludicious – Zurich Game Festival, Pro Helvetia and its liaison office in New Delhi aim to build bridges between Indian and Swiss games developers.

Following a Call for projects led by Pro Helvetia New Delhi, Ludicious’ leadership team, Tobias Kopka and Michael Reaney reviewed a short list of submissions: “We are delighted with the choice of candidates in the delegation. Whilst in Zürich they will have the opportunity to meet a range of artists, designers, publishers and other industry figures and exchange across numerous events.”

Candidates were selected not only on their skills and qualifications, but also on the strength of the projects they submitted in their applications. Their projects demonstrated high production values and artistic quality achieved with relatively small teams. These match well to Ludicious, which has established itself as an important European showcase event for games and interactive media of distinction.
