‘Our “The German games industry” guide illustrates why Germany has become an attractive location in which to develop games,’ says game Managing Director Felix Falk. ‘No other European country generates higher sales with games and the corresponding hardware, and few countries in Europe can offer a comparable infrastructure. What’s more, with games being promoted at the federal level in the near future, we will soon be competitive globally at this level too. The guide clearly structures all the information and demonstrates why it’s worth investing in Germany.’
