5th International Arthouse Games Market

The A MAZE. Bazaar - 5. International Arthouse Games Market is a business module of A MAZE. Connect. It got awarded as part of the Innovative Formats 2024 competition of the Berlin Senate Department for Economic Affairs, Energy and Enterprises and is the only and first market for arthouse games, independent games and playful media productions which gives authors and digital artists the opportunity to meet with publishers, funding institutions, art institutions and collaborators. Our goal is to bring culture and games industry closer together.

The marketplace will be open on Thursday 9th and Friday, 10th of May from 10:00-16:00 CEST at Silent Green, Mars Restaurant and Cubus.

Additional Bazaar ticket for only 40€. LINK. (Tickets for MeetToMatch Networking Platform and Talks are available in the ticket shop until Tuesday, May 7, 11pm CEST. BAZAAR Talk-only tickets will be available May 8-10.)

We are the annual marketplace where game creators, digital artists, virtual worldbuilders can either connect to publishers and labels or funding institutions, festivals and curators, but also finding new opportunities in working on theater- or museums projects. Our major goal is to create a sustainable environment for playful media creators, and game studios to get their works properly produced, released and exhibited.

Beside networking and pitching your works you can join this year some curated 30mins sessions. Line-up will be announced in mid April.

Thanks for the cooperation with MeetToMatch.
