Our monthly newsletter includes a ton of information which is not available anywhere else – you should really subscribe to it. Here’s the March 2016 edition.

If you’d like to bring and show your game during the second part of the evening, make sure to fill this form.

Awesome Prototype is hiring!

Work in Berlin for Awesome Prototype, an ambitious game studio with focus on mobile games made in Unity. They hand-built their office and host regular Towerfall tournaments, which is pretty cool, if you ask me.

These are the currently open positions:

• Interface Designer
• Senior Dev

Have you heard? Other news from Berlin

There’s a new studio in town: Black Anvil Games is a subdivision of Wooga focused on creating mobile games for a core gaming audience. They will launch their first game in the coming months – a strategy title called Warlords (teaser image at the tops of this page).

Black Pants Studio, LudInc and Tinytouchtales are nominated for the Deutscher Computerspielpreis 2016: good luck!

Kickstart this: Fayre of the Forgotten, a board game by Thoughtfish.

no pain no gain is the first worldwide solo exhibition by art duo //////////fur////, famous for their PainStation (that evil Pong machine that makes you bleed). You can play ten of their interactive playful installations at the Museum für Kommunikation until June 26th.

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.
