  • NG17 Discovery Day Progamme

    Now that indie was wiped out by the indiepocalypse, it is time to explore new territories, to discover new games, new players and new perspectives on games.

  • Discover the new Indie Day

    During the last many years, or even since the term was conceived, the question of what indie games are has been slung around. It is not even a novel dilemma, and neither unique to games. Music has gone through the “indie” discussion and subsequent “revolution”. We, that is the Copenhagen Game Collective, have never concerned…

  • ALL THE RAVE: Nordic Game Jam 2016 Pre-Party

    A party to get all you jammers in the mood for 48 hours of sitting in one place staring at a monitor. This year it will be bigger than ever before and that’s why we are having it at Pumpehuset. There will be an arcade of the newest coolest indie games together with some nordic…

  • 2015 – A retrospect

    At the end of every year, we look back at all the things we have accomplished. These ruminations can seem a bit self-fellating, but it is important to stop and take some time to reflect about the things you achieve. Otherwise, the fight to spread games as an artistic and accepted medium can seem like…

  • Playing drones as instruments

    We have long been trying to bridge the art world and games. We have been focusing on exploring the fringes of the digital medium. Hacking drones to play music is one such experiment. There is a zeitgeist surrounding the recent surge of toy quadcopters [toy helicopters with 4 rotors that can stabilise itself], colloquially called…

  • Goodbye w00t, Hello new stuff

    w00t is closing down W00t started three years ago, as a collaboration between Indgreb, Vallekilde Højskole and Copenhagen Game Collective. During these three years, we have created what we think is Copenhagen’s three most beautiful and interesting play festivals. Needless to say, we are proud to have been part of this. It is now time…

  • We’re going to Amaze-a – we’re gonna have a party, wowowow

    Just a little update. A lot of the members are going to A Maze festival in Berlin to show the projects they are working on and hanging out. Some of them are even nominated in different categories. Mads, Joon and Jonas from Glitchnap are showing their new Sentree (previously Zumbie) that I’m looking forward to…

  • Lyst – a symposium and game jam celebrating Love, Romance and Sex in Games

    Thinking back at Lyst now, I can’t say anything else than it was really amazing. I can’t think of one thing that was not great! On so many levels: Speakers, food, people, games… It was the first time for someone from Copenhagen Game Collective and Game Girl Workshop to come together and organize something like…
