    Gamescom 2019

    Introduction Gamescom 2019 was again a very special experience. Each year I’m thinking, I will be there way to long but every time, Gamescom feels way to short. I met with many folks like every year and also with a few new ones that I haven’t met before.

The production sites will need tools as the older…
