The Game Together is a competition for students in the last two years of a Bachelor, Master or Ph.D. program of a games faculty in Germany, Austria or Switzerland. After the application with the semester projects, our expert jury determines the 3 nominees. Places 1-3 will then be awarded at an award show-livestream. The virtual mentoring sessions with our developers, which take place afterwards, are - among other great prizes - the main prize of the competition for all 3 nominated teams.

During an awards show livestream, in which the nominated teams are present as guests, the announcement of the placements takes place.
How big can my team be?
There is no limit to the size of a team. However, we would like to know who did what in each project, so we ask you to be very specific.
Can my team consist of people from different semesters?
Basically yes, but each team member must be in the last two years, i.e. the last four semesters of bachelor or master studies.
Which games are allowed?
Due to the setup of our judging sessions, the following games are allowed: PC (Game Build Download), PC (Steam), Mobile (for Android in the Google Store). There are no restrictions on the genre, target audience and others.

What happens during the award show-livestream?
During the livestream, the teams present their games and answer a few questions. This will be followed by the award ceremony.
How do the mentoring sessions work?
In a discussion with the winning teams, we clarify what needs there are for mentoring. Depending on the possibility, these are then carried out virtually with our developers after the award show livestream.
Winners of Game Together 2022
Bloom Studios with Ominous Stew
In Ominous Stew, players prepare dishes based on their customers’ nutrition needs, while gaining reputation and rivaling against other restaurants. Ominous Stew is a funny game, designed with a lot of love and promises a great time in both single and multiplayer mode.
Hivemind Interactive with Hooked
Hooked is a game of skill taking place in an alien tech environment. It also tickles the brain with some puzzle elements. In this 3D first-person game, players find their way through levels by pulling objects (and themselves!) through the environment with use of their trusted grappling hook-bow.
Fish in a Pocket with Out of the Box
Out of the Box is a puzzle game, in which the player takes the role of Schrödinger’s Cat solving puzzles to unveil the mystery of what happened in the laboratory they’re stuck in. During their escape, they will get to know other experiments and navigate through the two dimensions in which the cat can move.
Minh Son X SolidARity with Solitude
While the very innovative and experimental Augmented Reality Mobile game Solitude did not quite crack the top three, we still wanted to honor it. In this calming puzzle game, players take control of a bird called Neki and lead her through a maze by exploring new ways of perspective thinking. Being an AR mobile game, players need to adjust the angle of their mobile phone to allow Neki to proceed on her way.
