Hamburg is not only a hotspot for the development of computer games, but also for numerous vocational schools and universities that offer courses specifically for future professionals in the games industry. For students and career starters, the exchange with experts in the games industry is essential in order to know the requirements in the individual disciplines and to prepare for them. In order to intensify this exchange, gamecity:Hamburg offers the new event format Game Starter in cooperation with Hamburg's vocational colleges and universities.


At the first event of Game Starter, three experienced game designers will report on their careers, their jobs and answer the participants' questions. They will talk about the everyday challenges in professional game development, their experiences in the games industry and the things our experts would have liked to know at the beginning of their career.


Our three industry experts are:

Christin Matt - Senior Game Designer at InnoGames

Martin Wilkes - Creative Lead and Game Designer at Daedalic

Maurice Hagelstein - Co-Founder and Game Director at Tiny Roar


The event is free of charge and is organized as a moderated video conference via Zoom. The moderation is done by Dennis Schoubye, Project Lead gamecity:Hamburg. Participants can ask their questions via text or voice chat and only need a device that can play the video chat and a stable internet connection. No webcam or microphone is required.
