Fun and Computer Games

July 2019

And the winners were… Germany’s State Minister for Digitalization Dorothee Bär presented the German Computer Games Prizes in 14 categories. The awards carried prize money to the tune of €590,000 overall.

The coveted award for Best German Game went to the creators of the mystery-adventure Game “Trüberbrook.” The Best Children’s Game prize went to ‘”Laika,” and the Best Young People’s Game to “Unforeseen Incidents.”

Bär praised computer games for “uniting fun and innovation,” saying that they helped move digitalization forward. The German government, in any case, is taking computer games very seriously. German Minister of Transportation and Digital Infrastructure Andreas Scheuer announced that his ministry would make €50 million available to fund development in the sector.
