We will, however, not give you any further details yet – everybody needs a little suspense, so stay tuned.
In this blog we will broach many issues relating to the event highlight gamescom. In our categories “Meet the stars”, “Meet the Games” and “Meet the News”, you will find lots of news, background stories and interviews from the computer game industry in the next couple of months, true to our motto “Ready to play – discover new worlds”.
Video and computer games have long left their niche and have become a part of our daily lives. Everyone is a gamer, always and everywhere. This development is reflected by gamescom which has turned into the meeting place and an innovative gaming venue for the community, emphasizing the fact that the mass phenomenon of gaming has indeed found its place in society. In order to mirror this, the logo has been updated accordingly: the word mark and logo is now more compact and more concise and – more importantly – puts the community in the focus.
