- Video games are earning a lot of money, nowadays even more than movies. That's why the biggest game room Gamescom is the ideal place to put you in the spotlight.

With 350,000 visitors, Gamescom in Cologne offers an unprecedented platform to gain attention to you. This year the fair was opened by Chancellor Angela Merkel. The German elections are at your doorstep, and you're talking about a younger audience.

Or car manufacturer BMW who watched online during the Electronic Arts press conference and watched millions of fans than revealed a new car? The BMW M5 will be for sale for consumers next year, but will be available in the race game Need for Speed ​​Payback from November 10th.

During my visit to Gamescom, there were as usual long rows of upcoming blockbusters like Star Wars Battlefront 2, Call of Duty: WWII and Super Mario Odyssey. There is a lot of effort to seduce gamers with big stands and banging music, but these established names sell virtually virtually anything.

Fortunately, there is also room for smaller, sympathetic projects. Fe is a game I look forward to. Fairy-tale and playing in the Scandinavian forests. By closing friendships with animals, you can save them from great evil. Furthermore, Super Lucky's Tale is a nice 'old-fashioned' colorful platform game full of charm and Vertigo Games in Rotterdam is working hard on its new strategic virtual reality game: Skyworld.
