Who we are

Dutch Game Garden (DGG) in Utrecht has supported over 230 game studios through its game incubation program and housing, and has helped even more. Since 2008, the organization’s mission has been to create job opportunities and economic growth by supporting the Dutch Games Industry and promoting entrepreneurship. We support the games industry through affordable studio space, events, advice, and matchmaking. 

Dutch Game Garden’s incubation program helps promising game startups by providing game business knowledge, workshops, and access to an ever-expanding network of industry professionals.

Some of the most talented game studios from the Netherlands call (or have called) Dutch Game Garden their home. Examples include Abbey Games (Reus, Renowned Explorers, Godhood), Vlambeer (Ridiculous Fishing, Nuclear Throne), RageSquid (Action Henk, Descenders), Tover (Tovertafel), and Ronimo Games (Awesomenauts, Swords & Soldiers). The assorted mix of creativity is what makes Dutch Game Garden a prime hub for game development in the Netherlands.
