Timeline „Games Antrophology“ Today we know, that games are cultural artefacts. But on which base is this knowledge based and how did it emerged historically? We visited Game Dev Days Tallinn! The Game Dev Days took place on April 16th and 17th at the Kultuurikatel in Tallinn. What happened at 48h Stockholm? For April 12th and 13th BBN.net invited a delegation from Berlin-Brandenburg and our partner countries to Stockholm, to get insights into the local games and VR industry with another fully packed edition of the 48h programme. @BBN_net July 17, 2018 https://www.facebook.com/berlinbalticnordicnet/posts/2120667294924539 … @BBN_net July 11, 2018 Great article by Achim Fehrenbach about the Swedish Games Industry!

The city – well known as a haven for subcultures – now also gains lots of reputation as a place for business and innovation. Some call the German capital “Silicon Allee” or “Berlin Valley”. And there lies truth in the pun. Finland Today, nearly 300 Finnish games companies employ 3000 people. The revenue: 2,4 bn Euros p/a. The growth rate from 2013 to 2014: nearly 100 %. The digital media market is dominated by software development and marketing. Interesting: the high percentage of VFX specialists in this sector. Poland Poland is considered to be a rising star. But the 300 game companies – most of them are independent – with 4000 employees still aim for more (and well deserved) international recognition. This is changing for good now. Poland has a lot to offer – as a customer market and an export country. Sweden In Sweden, things seems to work just fine – from social security to digital entrepreneurship. The feeling to have a safety net may be one of the reasons why the majority of Swedish people is progressive, comparatively wealthy and blessed with an affinity for a digital lifestyle. Which vice versa can be regarded as a head start in the race of digital natives. Estonia Many of the 1,3 mio citizens of E-estonia have embraced a digital lifestyle, supported by official institutions. In the wake of Skype’s great success – the video messenger was engineered by three Estonians – 350 start-ups emerged. That’s one start-up per 3700 citizens: the highest proportion in Europe.
