SpielFabrique was really worthwhile for us, because we got to know and exchange experiences with a lot of other studios, many of which we want to stay in contact with for a long time.” – Massive Miniteam (Germany)
SpielFabrique helped us building a strategy and having a look back at what was working and what wasn’t in order to be more effcient production and business-wise.” – Black Flag (France)
Without SpielFabrique we would have never founded our Studio and made the decision to become professional game developers.” -Ludopium (Germany)
This experience really changed us and we came away with a lot of great notes and advice! I couldn’t give a precise point, because really, we were given help in all areas, from communication to the gameplay itself!” – Les Crafteurs (France)
