Game Development and the Netherlands Game Awards
In partnership with the Netherlands Embassy in Lebanon, Pitchworthy.org (under our previous name, AltCity) ran an intensive game development program in 2013-2014, working with aspiring and early-stage game development teams to learn critical skills, further develop their games, and connect with the global gaming world through the Casual Connect gaming conference in Amsterdam.
Several of the teams went on to launch their games, and join leading global startup accelerators such as Techstars.
Worldwide, the gaming sector is going through rapid transformation, as new technologies, new business models, and new trends are disrupting every corner of the gaming landscape. Emerging ecosystems and creative hubs like Lebanon have great potential to join this movement and become a leading gaming, creative, and content hub for the region, and beyond.
