The association of Austrian game developers was founded in 2017 by the CEOs of Bongfish, jumpandUp, Mi’pu’mi Games, ovos media, Rarebyte, rudy games and stillalive studio. Our main objectives are the growth and promotion of the Austrian game development industry as well as the collaboration with players from other sectors such as economy, politics and media – all to create a positive economic and social climate for game development in Austria.
The PGDA works across a range of activities and initiatives, including events, policy, education, diversity, and business opportunities.
The PGDA represents and protects the interests of Austrian game developers by acting as the voice of the Austrian game development industry towards partners, media and government bodies, both nationally and internationally.
We operate nationally and internationally and hold ourselves to the following values:
we understand games as a business
we are from the industry for the industry
we are inclusive, approachable, and respectful
