Hamburg Funds Computer Games Development with More Than 2 Million Euros

Posted on: Jan 09, 2020 By Isabelle in News and trends,

The City of Hamburg is funding the development of computer games with 520,000 euros per year from 2020. The funds will initially be made available from 2020 to 2023.

Hamburg is the only location initiative of the games industry in Germany to offer network activities, services and financial support in equal measure.

From this year on, computer game prototypes in Hamburg will be eligible for non-repayable grants of up to 80,000 euros per project. Developers and game studios (natural and legal persons) are eligible to apply – from young and small developer studios to established companies that have their headquarters or a permanent office in Hamburg at the start of the funding received. A total of 400,000 euros per year will be made available for the funding of prototypes.

Hamburg is supporting the development of computer games regardless of the expected German age rating by the “USK”. Hamburg and the new games funding understand games equally as an economic factor and cultural asset.
