The games industry is considered worldwide as an exemplary growth industry. About 10 years ago a few publishers offering infotainment services were founded in Berlin. Subsequently, an increasing number of companies have established themselves here; service providers for 3D animation, Voice acting in games, publishers and numerous game developers such as Morgen Studios, Yager or Radonlabs, have since then begun to produce for the world-market. Educational institutions, notably the Games Academy and the German Film School, generate qualified successors to infuse the field with new blood. Platforms such as Gameduell and the e-sport competition/championships complete the range on offer in this city.
Berlin represents a lively and innovative games scene. Additional services available include numerous Berlin-based institutions operating on a national level, such as the German association for interactive entertainment (Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltung), the eSport federation, the German association G.A.M.E, the USK as well as new networks within the field of Serious Games.
