Just under a year after IGJAM #13, it's that time again: The 14th InnoGames Game Jam will take place from October 6 - 8, 2023. Games enthusiasts of all experience levels are once again cordially invited to develop video games together.
The Hamburg-based developer of mobile and browser games has appointed Christiane Gäb to head its HR department. Gäb had been working as HR Business Partner at the company since January 2023. In her new position, she reports directly to InnoGames Co-founder and COO Michael Zillmer.
Longevity pays off! InnoGames is proud to announce that it’s iconic strategy game Forge of Empires has surpassed €1 billion in lifetime revenues. Forge of Empires was launched in March 2012 and currently has over 130 million registered players. It is enjoyed by players around the world and is one of the mainstay free-to-play games in the strategy and simulation genre.
The year is 2003. Netflix is sending DVDs by mail. Myspace has gone live, and the first Call of Duty is hitting the shelves. In the same year, Hendrik and Eike Klindworth and Michael Zillmer publish the browser-based empire-building strategy game "Tribal Wars” and create the basis for InnoGames GmbH, founded in 2007.
Hamburg-based game developer InnoGames is undertaking a comprehensive strategic organizational realignment to secure its position as a competitive leader in the gaming industry in a changing market landscape. The transformation will help the company reach more players with innovative game concepts and make its work on its current games more efficient.
In cooperation with Gamecity Hamburg and Hamburg-based institutions of higher education, InnoGames has already given away 100 Hamburg Games Conference tickets to students majoring in games. Following the motto "first come - first serve", students of all disciplines can now secure one of another 100 tickets.
On the 1st weekend in February, 93 jammers developed a total of 20 new video games in just 48 hours. Thanks to the lively participation, the event hosted by InnoGames was one of the biggest German Global Game Jams of the year.
After the jam is before the jam: Only about two months have passed since the 13th InnoGames Game Jam, but Germany's second-largest game developer is once again inviting aspiring and professional programmers, graphic artists, game and sound designers to a joint time-lapse game development event. On the 1st weekend in February, the time has come.
In July 2022, InnoGames GmbH became the first German games company to voluntarily publish its salary bands. Within just two months, Germany's leading developer of mobile and browser games filled all 19 vacancies open at the time of publication.
The second weekend of November saw 113 budding and professional programmers, graphic artists, game and sound designers put in a 48-hour powerhouse creative performance, creating 25 new video games from scratch at the 13th InnoGames Game Jam (IGJAM).
