Why the Indie-Apocalypse is a good thing.

Founding a company that creates games and services around gaming these days, is one of the most exciting – and difficult thing to do. Every tool is available and therefore everyone is a game developer. Jana Reinhardt will talk about the faster and faster cycle of birth and death of smaller studios, and changes, challenges and chances you have to expect.
This talk is about the game scene, but is adaptable for everyone.
Jana Reinhardt is a game designer, illustrator, game journalist for Deutschlandfunk Nova and wielder of the German Computer Games Award for Best Youth Game for “TRI: Of Friendship and Madness”.

Game Development

Rat King Entertainment

Rat King, that is Jana Reinhardt and Friedrich Hanisch. They love to make weird game experiences – most often with first-person perspective – that enable players with more freedom than walking through tubes. Their emphasis lies on mainstream-incompatible designs, atmosphere and characters. This is why they participate in game jams regularly, where one can work quickly and intensely on new ideas with like-minded people. For their creations they often use Photoshop, 3dsmax, Unity, coffee and mild confusion.
