The countdown is on! Game professionals from around the world are set to gather at the Kasernenareal in Zurich for the Zürich Game Festival Ludicious from 18 to 21 January. The event, sponsored by its main partners Pro Helvetia and the City of Zurich, represents Switzerland’s most important exchange and networking platform in the game field. The programme includes conferences, workshops, match-making opportunities and a business accelerator, and aims to boost the international standing and long-term outlook of the domestic game developers’ scene. This is the festival’s first edition under a new international team headed by Tobias Kopka and Michael Reaney.
