UK Gaming in Full Force at Gamescom 2016

Gaming industry professionals will be congregating in Germany for Gamescom 2016 and the UK will represented in force!

As exhibitors from across Europe gear up for this year's Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, on September 17th - 21st, the UK-based organization Ukie (UK Interactive Entertainment) is getting ready to bring some of the UK's best video game talent and entertainment service companies to the conference. They will be showcasing 66+ companies from across the UK including vendors such as Green Man Gaming, one of the World most forefront companies in facial animation Cubic Motion, and indie developers Toxic Games.

As well as being on hand for talks and advice, Ukie will also be unveiling this year's UK Game of the Show Award. The award goes to the best UK developed, but unreleased, game exhibiting at the event. Last year the award went to indie studio Robo Pixel Games at their Metal Slug-inspired shooter Gunnihilation.

Ukie is the UK's trade only body for the UK's game and interactive entertainment industry. They support members from self-funded independent start-ups all the way up to multinational developers and publishers covering anything from PC games up to consoles and mobile technology.


It all started with an Atari ST and here I am, all these years later, still loving video games! Indie games are where my heart is and where it'll stay. The world of indie video games is ever evolving and such an interesting arena to be a part of!
