Review of gamescom 2023

gamescom 2023

Friday 1 September 2023

With a total of 1,220 exhibitors from 63 countries, the stand of Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg (H-BRS) was in good company. This year, 320,000 visitors came to the Gamescom, of which 31,000 were trade visitors.

The H-BRS stand presented itself with two student projects. The robot Reachy played tic-tac-toe against the visitors and was happy when it could win. In the second project, visitors demonstrated their skills on the drums and had themselves "beamed" onto a virtual stage in a concert hall using VR glasses. The better they hit the given beat, the more euphoric the audience cheered and the higher the high score rose.

The University Team

The university team was made up of students, staff and professors from the H-BRS and was happy to answer questions about the degree programmes and projects. Pupils used the contact point to make initial contacts for a pupil internship and were impressed by the projects. Prospective students found the direct exchange with students and professors very helpful.

Alumni were also attracted to the stand and were happy to talk about "old times" with former teachers and professors. 

And every now and then, much to the delight of the university team, cosplayers strayed onto the stand. Our picture gallery shows a small insight. 

We are looking forward to gamescom 2024, which will take place in Cologne from 21 to 25 August. Save the date!
