A bridge for mentoring and international platforms. After three years of successful existence and numerous deals between game studios and publishers made possible, the SwissGames Showcase is back again this year!

The applications came from Studios all over Switzerland and were reviewed by the same international jury as in 2022, composed 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).

These five experts evaluated the submitted 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 the experts’ professional network. Furthermore, the studios will take part in various international events throughout the year and will be supported in curated matchmaking by our partner MeetToMatch.
