Game Together

Attention Students!

As a new initiative of our Ubisoft Education track, we would like to introduce you to the Game Together. This competition is aimed at students in their final year of a Bachelor's, Master's or Ph.D. programme of a games faculty at a university in Germany, Austria or Switzerland (GSA). As with our other education initiatives, we want to support young talents at an early stage with the Game Together, accompany them on their way into the video game industry and expand our relationships with the universities that offer games studies in the GSA region for a fruitful and collaborative cooperation. For more information on how you can participate and what you can win, check out the trailer video below.

Winners of Game Together 2022

1st Place

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.

2nd Place

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.

3rd Place

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.

Special Mention

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.
