Our newsletter includes a ton of information about game-related stuff going on in Berlin which is not available anywhere else – you should really subscribe to it! Here’s the latest edition.

Registrations for Talk & Play #19 are open, spots are going fast, so RSVP via Meetup now. This time we’re going to have short talks by Gregg Tavares (HappyFunTimes!), Ido Yehieli (Slayaway Camp!), Jennifer Wergin (Let’s Play!) and Johanna Jacob (Scratch!). If you’d like to bring and show your game during the second part of the evening, make sure to fill this form.

New games made in Berlin

Here’s a list of games made by companies and individuals based in Berlin that have been released in the last few weeks. If your game is missing, or if you know a game that should be included, please let me know.


It’s a Meetup world

I couldn’t find enough news to share, so I’m using this space to mention a few game- / tech- / art-related Meetup groups created in the last few months that you might be interested in joining:

As usual, if you’d like to receive regular updates about the Berlin game scene follow @BerlinGamez on Twitter and like the BGS Facebook page. Joining the Meetup group ain’t a bad idea either.
