Deutscher Entwicklerpreis 2019

On Wednesday, December 11, the Deutscher Entwicklerpreis (German Game Developer Award) will be awarded in Cologne. It is the oldest and most important award for outstanding achievements in the development of digital games in the German-speaking area, and we are really proud and delighted that our friends and CGL-Alumni at Ludopium are nominated for their latest game in two categories!

Vectronom“, the three-dimensional riddle with a frenetic electronic soundtrack, is nominated in the category “Best Indiegame” and “Best Mobile Game“.

Vectronom is about finding your path through an ever-changing world, keeping the rhythm with every move you make. The highly intuitive and addictive gameplay will keep you moving through daunting challenges that get trickier along the way. The prototype was developed in the Franco-German accelerator program Spielfabrique and it was co-produced and published by ARTE. The game has already won several awards, including “Best Game” at the Indie Arena Booth at Gamescom 2018 and GDC’s “Best in Play” 2019.

Ludopium is an independent game studio based in Cologne that specializes in music games and ludic audiovisual installations. The team consists of an international group of highly inventive game developers with backgrounds in different areas of media production. The four founders Balint Márk, György Droste, Juan Orjuela and Utz Stauder graduated at CGL and were part of Cologne Game Farm, the CGL Business Incubator that supports the development of game ideas into finished products, giving participating students and alumni the opportunity to leverage their training and knowledge to bring their project to market.

So, we keep our fingers crossed!
