You might not be aware that the German government is currently investing a good amount of money to incentivise game development in the country. At the German Computer Game Awards or Deutscher Computerspielpreis, German developers can even win cash prizes as well as a trophy.

Baldur's Gate III picked up a win (but no cash) at the award ceremony for Best International Game, which prompted the Parliamentary State Secretary at Germany's Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Michael Kellner, to wish for German studios to make games like Larian's masterpiece.

"As the federal government, we want to make an important contribution to this through our new games funding. The funding is to help ensure that games such as this year's best international game also go on to be developed in Germany," Kellner said (thanks, PCGamer).

The UK, France, and other regions have seen their gaming industries grow thanks to federal funding programs. In time, perhaps we'll see Germany become more of a gaming powerhouse as well.

REVIEW. Written by Toni Turren

Despite the fact there are some little bugs in Baldur's Gate 3 it comes out as one of the greatest releases in 2023, though there are some slow parts compared to pc version. Most important is to understand that this game is turn-based, so its much more different than the release from 2004.
