Deadline VERY SOON!! :)
Be part of the Danish games Steam Sale!
STEAM SALE - For Danish games, 11th to 15th January 2024

Hello everyone @here, here is info about a Steam Sale for Danish game devs and publishers.

There is more fantastic news on the horizon for the gaming industry here in Denmark. Besides the already great news about an Institute for Game Development, in a short while we will also have a great new gaming event called, Copenhagen Gaming Week. This will take place 12th to 14th of January 2023.

Here is a link with more information about the events and the tickets themselves: https://www.copenhagengamingweek.dk/

In conjunction with Copenhagen Gaming Week, we have managed to persuade Steam to have a Steam Sale alongside the event. This Steam Sale will be called “Copenhagen Games Week”

This of course also means that we need and want to have as many awesome Danish games be a part of this, that is why we are assembling a list of participants and games for the sale.

The event and sale, Copenhagen Games Week, is for Danish companies that have either developed or published games for steam.

So if you have a game on steam that you wished to be added to the list we are making, you need to write me at his email Brian@DKGAME.dk with the following information

Company Name
The name of the contact person
Phone Number for the contact person
Which of your Steam game(s) you wish to take part in the sale with
Link for each of the game(s)

Filmaftale for 2024-2027: En stærk filmnation
https://kum.dk/fileadmin/_kum/1_Nyheder ... 4-2027.pdf

In English:
The New Institute for Game Development

The negotiating parties note that a total of DKK 33.8 million is allocated in the 2024-2027 financial proposal for a new institute for game development. This institute is intended to provide subsidies for the development, production, and dissemination of Danish digital games and support better conditions for the industry through activities such as export promotion, talent development, promotion, data collection, and analysis. The financial proposal for 2024 allocates DKK 5.2 million in 2024, DKK 7.8 million in 2025, DKK 10.4 million in 2026, and DKK 10.4 million in 2027.

In order to consolidate the game development sector under one public institution, the new game institute will take over the management of game support through the Gaming Scheme, currently administered by the Danish Film Institute. A total of DKK 15.0 million annually will be transferred from the Danish Film Institute to the new game institute.

The negotiating parties note that a total of DKK 33.8 million is thus allocated to the gaming sector from the 2024 financial proposal and DKK 60.0 million from the Gaming Scheme for the period 2024-2027. The Gaming Scheme will continue to be administered by the Danish Film Institute until the new game institute is fully operational.

Hello everyone,

I want to extend an invitation to anyone who wants to join the first-ever UDU game jam in December. We have spent the last couple of years developing the UDU Controller to give users more fun, active, and immersive experiences on mobile devices. Now, our Software Development Kit (SDK) has reached a level where it is ready to be tested by you guys. We are so excited to see all the cool games you can come up with for our new technology.

Throughout the jam weekend, we have an array of offerings, including food, drinks, prizes, and more. The UDU team will be on hand to provide support for utilizing both the SDK and the hardware.

If you know of individuals who might be interested, please feel free to share the details.

Looking forward to seeing you there! 😄

In case you haven't heard about the latest AI models. The LCMs (Latent Consistent Model) is pretty insane with an amazing degree of artistic control from very simple sketching in real time.

Just click Watch on YouTube.

Just a quick recommendation if you are looking for a Photoshop-like. The web based Photopea is pretty sweet! Feels very much like an older version of Photoshop. Quite capable actually for a lot of things!
If ever in any situation that just need something quickly done. It's faster to open up compared to most desktop software in the same category. Saves locally to PSD. But remember it's web based so it does have it's limits when working with larger projects.

Teaser for Amazons Fallout series.

Well the teaser actually looks pretty cool! So optimistic for now.
But of cauae iit is just an ad.

Lets see where it lands! The Rings of Power episode 1 left me with mental Amazon scars that will never heal. Didn't even finish first episode. And the trailer was hard enough getting through.😬

LEGO Fortnite gets a gameplay trailer as it should be out now. By yesterday.

Honestly... I think it's a great match that will benefit both parties.
Also DK gamedevs had a hand in this somewhere.

Eddaheim's debut project NeonKnights in cyberpunk Copenhagen is still alive! Now with a WinterPitch 2023 video. (Too bad it's a bit youtube crushy compression in low 1080p)
But very impressive work! Hope they will land a deal soon! :D
