The Dutch Games Association proudly presents the opportunity to join a Dutch delegation to devcom and access to MeetToMatch – The Cologne Edition 2021 in the week of August 23 to 27, 2021.

We are convinced that by participating and offering a collective place in the both events, we are able to support individual organizations and developers, and contribute to the entire Dutch games industry and its business making.

Both events will happen fully virtually, so you can participate from the comfort of home. This opportunity has been made possible with the support of the Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO), who is supporting our industry during these events financially.

Are you looking to learn all the ins and outs of starting a game company in The Netherlands? Today we have published a practical guide to help you start up your game studio. The guide focuses on the practicalities of starting a game company in the Netherlands.

It’s always important to do your own research as this is not legal or financial advice, however we hope that this guide will help you in your first steps! Find the guide here.

Thanks to Maurice Kroes and the other contributors for creating this guide!

The DGA aims to support and facilitate initiatives led by the industry. The Dutch Game Industry Directory is an initiative to list all Dutch game companies and games, and is built by game designer and DGA board member Adriaan de Jongh.
We encourage our members and the rest of the industry to submit their company and games (link). As more Dutch game companies and games are submitted and updated, the Directory can be used as a resource for institutions and government to indicate the state of the industry, side by side to existing initiatives such as the Games Monitor. In time, we believe the Directory will give accurate and valuable insight about the industry. Once it does, we aim to include its data in our yearly reports on the industry.
If you have an initiative that could benefit from DGA support in any way, reach out to us.

We have updated the Dutch Games Association’s website today! Here are some of the changes:

  • We have simplified the theme, making future changes and iterations easier.
  • The home page now features artwork of Dutch games that we are proud of. We will update these featured games from time to time.
  • We have removed and consolidated some superfluous pages, it's now easier to navigate. 
  • The About page has new texts that better reflect where we're headed.
  • There is now an extensive Resources page. Anything that we believe is beneficial for the games industry and its ecosystem will go here. (Have something to add? Let us know!)

 

If you have feedback, suggestions, or bug reports – just let us know. 

Onwards! Thank you!
