SWISSGAMES is initiated by Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council.

SwissGames Showcase 2022

Initiated in 2020 by Pro Helvetia the SwissGames Showcase mentorship programme is an annual mentorship programme that offers Swiss independent studios a tailor-made opportunity to be individually coached and connected with the industry. 

Following a call for participation, Swiss studios from all regions applied through video pitches which were reviewed by a panel of international experts. Each member of the jury chose the games that they will personally coach via online sessions and introduce to potential business partners within their networks. The studios forming the SwissGames Showcase 2022 will also take part to a range of international industry events throughout the year as well as benefit from a tailored support and event coordination by partner MeetToMatch.
