SwissGames Showcase 2022: Selected studios now announced

The 9 selected studios forming the SwissGames Showcase 2022 are:

Hooded Traveler Games– Aestik

Lululu Entertainment – Henry

Ninoko – Ultimate Godspeed

After two years of successful existence and enthusiasm, the SwissGames Showcase is back this year in the same form: a bridge for mentoring and international platforms.

The applications came from all over Switzerland from studios and were reviewed by an international jury composed this year by Lélia Peuchamiel (RenderGreen), Astrid Refstrup (Triple Topping Games, Kowloon), Ella Romanos (Fundamentally Games), Rufus Kubica (11 bit studios) and Jason Della Rocca (Execution Labs). They evaluated the games and picked the ones they will personally accompany throughout the programme, which includes not only mentoring sessions, but also introductions of the selected studios to their own professional network. The studios will also take part to international events, as well as tailored support and event coordination led by partner MeetToMatch.
During its first edition in 2020, the Showcase has enabled 7 studios out of 11 to find a partner.

“The SwissGames Showcase has a great process to provide funding to early stage game developers, by providing the support they need and engaging with industry leaders to do so.”

– Ella Romanos (Fundamentally Games Ltd)
