14 projects were selected by this Autumn’s Game Design Work Grants jury for their artistic quality and originality.

Here’s what the jury said about the Autumn 2023 edition:

“Like a breath of fresh air, new game creators and studios are stepping on stage with novel ideas, while veteran studios come back with new projects, a testament to the importance of Pro Helvetia’s funding measures. In addition, recurring projects show improvements in many areas, and overall, an increased market awareness can be observed. Finally, the tendency towards simulation games being produced in Swiss studios is in line with the trends in the industry at large.”
