We celebrate 20 years of supporting Hamburg's games industry!
Founded in 2003, Gamecity Hamburg was the first public funding institution for the games industry at the state level in Germany. We want to celebrate 20 years of accompanying studios, publishers, and game devs with events, funding, and support. As a special event this year, the Senate Reception "20 years of Gamecity Hamburg" was held at Hamburg City Hall on April 20. Find the photos in the gallery.
Join us and take a trip through 20 years of Gamecity Hamburg with us:
- Video: We interviewed some of Hamburg's key games industry people about their view on the last 20 years and Hamburg as a games industry location

20 years - looking back & into the future
What has changed in the past 20 years in Hamburg's games industry? What makes Hamburg special as a games industry location? And what's to come?
We asked asked industry players from Hamburg - from major companies to indie studios about it!
With: Manny Hachey (THREAKS), Michael Zillmer (InnoGames), Daniel Budiman (Rocket Beans TV), Julian Werner (Bytro), Valentina Birke (Super Crowd), Jonas Hüsges (Daedalic), Michael Schade (Rockfish Games), Achim Quinke (Quinke Networks), Dennis Schoubye (Gamecity Hamburg) and a greeting from Dr. Carsten Brosda (Minister of Culture and Media of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg).
