As you might remember, our proud nation is once again gearing up for a majestic presence at gamescom in Cologne. The Belgian games booth will be even bigger (168m²) than last year so all Belgian game companies can show the gaming world what they’re made of.
There’s just one more month before we head to Cologne to rock gamescom and there’s still plenty of exciting game studios that need introducing! Continuing on the road to gamescom, the next company to cross our path is Bazookas, a development agency based in the heart of beautiful Bruges.
Bazookas have been creating kickass applications and games for over 6 years now, accumulating tons of experience in both gaming and mobile applications. They were one of the first companies to really double down on serious games (having worked for big brands like Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Orange) and are currently working on two unannounced serious game projects.
They’re also putting their experience with game tech to good use to embrace up and coming technologies such as augmented, virtual and mixed reality, having created a broad range of experiences in both entertainment and industrial use cases.
At the booth they will showcase one of their latest serious game projects Yum Runner. This endless runner was developed for Socialistische Mutualiteiten with the objective was to help younger children eat more healthily.
As always: a warm thank you to the wonderful people at Flanders DC, who turn gamescom into an essential experience. They couldn’t do that without the valuable support of Digital Wallonia, Brussels Invest and Export, Screen Brussels, VAF Gamefonds, WALGA, Creative Europe and ADN. Thank you all!
