We are still receiving submissions. The Advisory Board and curators have their hands full. We can finally announce the names that will visit this year’s Dragons’ scene. We especially encourage you to go meet with the representatives of gaming’s biggest sales platform, Steam, who will try to answer the most important questions of the DD audience. This year we’d also like to underscore the lecture by People Can Fly’s Roland Lesterlin – producer and director who worked on such games as Outriders, Just Cause 3 or The Chronicles of Riddick.

Enter an Arena for innovative projects
We plan to build a marketplace on the borderline between the Digital Dragons conference and Digital Dragons Accelerator a space for two sides of one coin to meet: intriguing, preselected gaming studios additionally prepared by us and interesting, promising, open to ideas publishers and investors, including investors from other industries. We want to create a shorter way for good studios to reach publishers and investors, and vice versa: a shortcut to good studios for publishers and investors’ scouts. The DD Arena is under the patronage of the Digital Dragons Incubator and Accelerator teams. We do not treat the DD Arena as a one-off, but as the introduction of a longform cooperation as part of the incubation and acceleration programmes within the Digital Dragons ecosystem. Thus, we’d like to already invite studios actively looking for investors and publishers – and investors and publishers actively looking for gaming studios.
