Press release: Sweden Game Arena is going to GDC 2018 together with Coffee Stain!

Skövde, March 16, 2018: Sweden Game Arena will be present at Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, CA, March 21-23.

Sweden Game Arena will once again exhibit at Game Developers Conference, together with a party consisting of lecturers and researchers from the University of Skövde, companies from our network and Gothia Innovation AB, the company operating The Game Incubator and Gothia Science Park.
Representatives from the organisation Swedish Games Industry will be present as well, and this year we are also proud to announce that we will be accompanied by Coffee Stain Publishing!

“We’re excited to partner up with Sweden Game Arena for another adventure abroad. You will find Coffee Stain’s publishing team in the Sweden Game Arena booth where we will be on the look-out for spectacular indie devs”, says Sebastian Badylak, Coffee Stain Publishing.

”We are truly pleased to have Coffee Stain joining us on site at GDC as they are a fantastic example of a studio that started its path to glory at the University of Skövde followed by a few years in The Game Incubator and today has become a successful company with its core production team remaining here in Skövde”, says Magnus Ling, spokesperson for Sweden Game Arena.

The University of Skövde, one of the largest educational institutions in Europe in the field of games, will, in particular, provide information about its two International Master’s Degree Programs (in Serious Games and in Digital Narratives) and its many research projects in the field that emanate from its two research groups (Media, Technology and Culture and the InGameLab). Boosting more than 500 game students in various game disciplines and more than 40 full-time faculty members and researchers, the University will actively seek partnerships in research and education.

Sweden Game Arena is also on the look out for speakers and partners for Sweden Game Conference 2018 that spans over three business days on October 17 – 19. The conference is followed by an extra Festival day, October 20, and it’s all happening in Skövde, Sweden.
