The 2019 edition of the Ludicious – Zürich Game Festival (31. January – 02. February 2019) has just come to end. In a joint effort Mediennetzwerk.NRW and games.nrw made it possible for three NRW-based companies to travel to Switzerland and present their current projects at the festival. Amongst those three was the studio Giant Door, run by CGL graduates and students Anil Ayaz, Corradi Mariani and Jonas Delleske, with its adventure game “Derpy Conga” [WT]. Another team, that was able to showcase their game, was the Cologne-based studio Massive Miniteam, co-founded by CGL alumni Michael Koloch and Milan Pingel. Their Hardcore Arcade Plafromer “SPITLINGS” will be released in the second quarter of 2019.
