Dear Gamescom friends Thank you so much to everyone for showcasing your brilliant games, with many innovative concepts & ideas, for having such humble and hardworking crew on your teams, and enormous gratitude to everyone else that put so much energy & effort into being displayed at such an iconic & world-renown event
You opened up my mind to the game industry in such a wonderful and inspiring way.. I feel.. in these past few days I’ve learnt more about the industry than I’ve ever learned in the past 3 years of working full time here… sooo many incredibly talented studios and publishers that have incredible people from all over the world…
Getting the chance to meet Playstack in person, my beloved publisher for The Case of the Golden Idol game, was unforgettable - you guys rock, are an inspiration, you illuminate success, hard work, professionalism, wonderful positivity and I hope we collaborate with you more in the future
Hanging out with 3D Realms, with some of the best action-packed games, and meeting such talented, unique and humble crew that are so kind and open minded, loved my passion and heard out my story, as well as helped me understand the game industry so much more.. particular shot out to Ty Brannan, Ben Reichstein and Philip Nymann for being so kind and sharing sooo many cool stories with me, you're my dear friends
Toplitz Productions - your games are absolutely amazing, and your crew is so welcoming, kind and open to networking.. some of the sweetest and nicest people I’ve ever met that publish such great games that I resonate with on so many levels.. So genuinely excited to contribute to the awesome projects you’re working with!
And countless other incredible games, developers, publishers, PR & HR, marketing, game scouts, game designers and many others of you I’ve got to connect with on such a unique level
Big thanks to everyone for a warm welcome into the game industry family, for being inspiring and ambitious leaders that you are, or being game-veterans who’ve walked it all, and I sincerely hope we will see each other soon and get to work on music for some of the most insane good games in the near future!!!
Finally, I wanted to thank the crew of Gamescom for organizing such a fantastic event, connecting unique people from all over the world and making other people’s dreams come true… as well as the city of Köln, Germany!! For even though you are slightly confusing for foreigners who just arrived xD (in terms of understanding navigation and its complicated train system xD) Somehow as time passes - Cologne draws you more and opens up its beautiful colors, opportunities and possibilities .. and German people - so social, friendly and always willing to help - greatly contribute to the awesomeness of this amazing city
Loved my first time in Germany!
You're my second home
Looking forward to come back next year!!! #gamescom2023 #gamescom #gamedev
