For the seventh time in a row, the Swiss Arts council Pro Helvetia is organising the presence of a selection of independent Swiss studios and startups to Europe’s largest trade fair for video games, Gamescom. Located within the Business Area, the SwissGames booth offers a perspective on Switzerland’s innovative and creative game industry.

Among the games showcased this year on the booth, embark the journey with award-winning «Persephone» to hell, fight against robots in a Mexican Day of the Dead-inspired atmosphere in «Morphies Law» or colonize Mars with «Terraformers». Prepare to dive into some deep immersive experiences with two location based entertainment (LBE) virtual reality projects: «Birdly®» fulfills our ancient dream of flying like a bird through an extremely vivid full-body experience, while Geneva-based Kynoa studios invites you to play soccer table like never before.
