1,2 Mio. Euro für neue Projekte aus der Hauptstadtregion, darunter das Game "The Great Sassanelli", das Game "The Last Whale Singer" (Teil einer Storyworld aus Game, Animationsfilm, Serie und VR-Experience), die Serie "Flatmates"

Big funding finale at the end of the year: With new games, series, VR and multi-platform projects from the capital region, things are getting artful and informative, exciting and playful! In its fifth funding round in 2020, Medienboard supported 23 projects with 1,189,500 euros. Political and historical content in particular, zeitgeist topics and female-driven stories stand out.
Helge Jürgens, Medienboard managing director for new media funding: “The new projects won us over with strong content, innovative storytelling and exciting cross-platform approaches. 6 series, 3 VR and 2 multi-platform projects as well as 12 games will receive funding. Just how successful “Games Made in Berlin-Brandenburg & Funded by Medienboard” are is demonstrated by the 15 nominations for 7 MBB-funded games at the German Developers’ Award. And we want to continue to support that!”
