Games, VR, and try samples of Swedish goodies at Gamescom

After a very succesful GamesCom last year, Sweden Game Arena decided to go even bigger. So for this year, we rented a huge bus, gathered som 15 studios and prepared a booth double the size, with 2 fully equipped VR rooms, 2 meeting rooms, 4 arcade cabinets, 7 PC demo stations and – last but not least- a lounge and bar for hangout.

Our GamesCom 2016 adventure started monday night when the bus departed. About 16 hours and a few traffic jams later, we reached Kölnmesse and found our lovely booth ready to be set up. 30 developers from our member studios all worked together to have everything prepared for the official GamesCom business start wednesday morning. Not only did we fixed all the hardware, but we also prepared for our Every Day Sweden Game Arena Happy Hour starting 15:00 – with pickled herring, flatbread, drinks and much more, freely available to anyone who stops by.

Our efforts were rewarded by a big and friendly guest crowd on GamesCom first day. Thank you SteamSpy, Oculus, 11bit, Indie Prize, Amazon, The Station, and all of you who joined us, tried our games and had chat.

So if you are at GamesCom, drop by in HALL 4.1 STAND C25 to try games, VR, and sample our Swedish goodies during happy hour!
