With its incubator program Games Lift, Gamecity Hamburg supports up-and-coming game developers in deepening their skills in relevant fields of the games industry as well as further developing their game ideas and projects. Since September 2022, five teams from Hamburg have been taking part in a three months long comprehensive workshop-, coaching-, and mentoring-program and received start-up financing of 15,000 euros as well as office space in a co-working facility.

Supported by a group of dedicated industry professionals acting as their coaches, mentors and networking contacts, the teams have been working on their projects, refining their visions, and setting out strategies for bringing their games to the market.

Now it's time for them to publicly present the games they are developing and the progress they made on their projects!

We celebrate their successful journey through the Games Lift Incubator program together with a public pitching event in the VR Headquarters in Hamburg that will also be streamed live. Each team will present their game in its current state and give an outlook into the future.

After the presentations, we'll have a get-together with the Games Lift teams and all on-site guests of the Games Lift Graduation at the VR Headquarters.

Learn more about the five teams in the Games Lift Incubator 2022 here or in our Games Lift Log.
