Region Specific: Berlin – index

at 11:30am October 15 2014

In E267, we visited Hamburg to check in on its thriving, online-game-focused development scene. Germany’s other development hub, Berlin, has had similar success in the browser and F2P markets, but many of the city’s studios have recently turned their attentions to mobile games and are proving every bit as successful there, too.

Today, however, the studio behind Battlestar Galactica Online, Drakensang Online and DarkOrbit Reloaded is practically unrecognisable. New attitudes to development, players and, perhaps most importantly, staff have reversed that decline and put the company in a…

Region Specific: Berlin – Yager

at 11:23am October 15 2014

Spec Ops: The Line, Yager’s powerful exploration of wartime morality, cleverly subverted genre conventions to carve out its own space. The studio itself is no stranger to standing apart, either, since it’s one of the few remaining traditional development studios in Berlin – there’s not even a whisper of mobile or browser games during our visit.…
