Game studio Vlambeer has won an Apple Design Award for their iOS game Ridiculous Fishing. During the annual World Wide Developers Congress (WWDC) in San Francisco (a conference for Mac and iOS developers) the jury praised the title’s gameplay and humor.
Ridiculous Fishing received lots of attention from the press long before its release. This was partly because another company shamelessly copied the initial concept and released it way ahead of Vlambeer’s own product. The original gameplay of Ridiculous Fishing as well as the original artwork by graphic designer Greg Wohlwend, eventually vindicated the original. The game is also a commercial success.Vlambeer is located in the Dutch Game Garden building. Have you not yet played the game? Ridiculous Fishing is available on the App Store.

Generally, we know games to be entertaining and challenging, but in truth they can also carry restrictive or stigmatising messages. Playing Architecture is curated by Mélanie van der Hoorn, a cultural anthropologist, and designed by Dafne Wiegers (AHH), architect. The exhibition invites you to play, wonder and critically reflect on the nature and role of architecture games, with a wide array of Amsterdam-related examples.
The exhibition will be on display at Arcam from December 10 until May 28, 2023.

On the 15th of December, the Dutch Games Association is hosting a holidays meetup, powered by CLICKNL! Sign-up and join us for some networking and learn more about Accessibility and Inclusivity in gaming.
Nowadays, young people get a lot of their social interactions through video games: chatting via Roblox or voice-calling during a game of Fortnite is the way in which young people now connect with each other. However, this is not always accessible to everyone. People with disabilities who have difficulty using the controls in these games are inadvertently excluded and isolated.
The talk of the evening will be hosted by Paul van der Made. He was only 30 when he suffered a severe brain hemorrhage. Thanks to his rehabilitation he is able to participate in numerous things again. However, his hobby of playing video games remains a challenge. In 2016 he founded the HiPerks Foundation with which he wants to stimulate game development for people with disabilities.
The meetup will be held at Hout & Hop in Utrecht (Europalaan 100, 3526 KS Utrecht).
- 16:00: Start
- 17:00-18:00: Presentation by Paul van der Made and Q&A
