Games Lift Incubator 2022 supports five teams from Hamburg in starting professional game development – Esports Extras.

The Games Lift Incubator started its third year yesterday with a successful kick-off event. This is the start of three months of intensive work on their own computer game for five developer teams, during which they are offered a comprehensive mentoring and workshop program with international industry experts, financial support of 15,000 euros per team and jobs in a co- Working Space will be supported in the development of their title. Games Lift is a program developed and organized by the Gamecity Hamburg location initiative to promote founders in the games industry.

In the incubator program, the teams are supported by over 30 top-class mentors such as Chris Wulf, Business Development Consultant, Marketing Manager Irene Preuss from the successful indie studio Happy Broccoli Games and Tim Krause-Murroni, CEO of the artist agency flow:fwd. Also there again this year: André Bernhard (IndieAdvisor), Christopher Kellner (Astragon Entertainment), Jörg Luibl (freelance journalist), Rebecca Lautner (Landfall Games), Paulina Kwiecinska (Tencent/Untold Games) and Simon Carless (GameDiscoverCo). .

In exchange with the team of experts, which covers all important areas from project management and game art to PR, the teams learn more about the legal basis for start-ups, product development using the product field method, the conception of marketing strategies and receive extensive pitch training.

These five teams are participating this year:

  • About Cannons + Sparrows by ACAS is a physics-based puzzle-platformer with story-driven genre twists and an ever-evolving character in the form of an enchantingly animated miniature cannon.
  • Baby Bullet by Team Marty is a tap-and-shoot game developed for touchscreens, in which players* Babsi “half-teen, half-gunball” shoots Bullet forward and shoots it insanely.
  • Evergreen Garden by Elin Meinecke is a charming farm simulation RPG with puzzle elements and a strong focus on sustainable gardening.
  • METACORE by Team Metacore is a co-op action first-person shooter for up to 4 players with a focus on teamwork and synergy effects that can be generated through an arsenal of unique weapons and gadgets.
  • Stack ’em up by Team Godcomplex is a party game (online or local) in which 2-6 players fight their way through crazy maps round by round and try not to be swallowed up by their opponents in this chaos.

Even after the three-month extensive program, the teams will continue to be supported by Gamecity Hamburg: until December of the following year, each team will receive further individual coaching sessions with professional consultants and support from a PR agency specializing in games.
