What: As the name suggests, BerlinGameScene.com is a website dedicated to the game scene of Berlin, Germany, featuring interviews, news, job ads and a calendar of events. We also organise the Talk & Play meetup every two months.
Why: The website was created to provide a platform to promote all type of local game-related activities, with a focus on video games. While there’s a lot of things going on in the city, we’ve always felt like they were getting very little visibility and recognition, so we decided to do something about it.
When: The website was launched in February 2015. Our Talk & Play event, which has been a sort of “incubator” for BerlinGameScene.com, has been taking place since June 2013.
Who: Right now Lorenzo Pilia is taking care of most things around here. Regular collaborators who document the events are Nomi (Vine), Julian (photography) and Iwan (video). If you’d like to help in any way, please get in touch.
Where: BerlinGameScene.com is a proud member of Saftladen, Berlin’s first indie game collective and shared working space. Feel free to come and say hello! (Best to contact us first to make sure someone’s there)
