Quote about the Greater Copenhagen Games Industry

I cannot emphasise enough how valuable it is to operate in a country where English is so second nature. Frankly, the level of English ability is so good I often forget I am not living in a country where this is the first languange.

Beer, breakfast and buddies

Work in Greater Copenhagen is so much more than working. People very often have breakfast and lunch together and share a beer after work, and companies usually arrange summer and Christmas parties, soccer games and other activities that make your colleagues more than just people you share an office space with.

The games industry also offers a unique environment for networking and cooperation. With most developers focusing on the international market, they are generally open to exchanging information and ideas.

Moreover, local organisations such as Interactive Denmark and DADIU often set up events, talks and game jams, where you can meet other professional developers and talk about your newest experiments – or just hang out and have fun.

Greater Copenhagen's games industry is very well connected with networks across companies
