Holy cow, Germany is giving away some serious money to its home game award winners: Signalis won €60,000 in the “Best Debut Game” category

I’m sure a trophy from The Game Awards is a big deal for winning developers, but is it better than cold hard cash? Here’s what the winners of Germany’s annual Computer Game Awards come home with in the form of a national fund, and I think I might replace that with a handshake with Geoff Keighley.

This year’s Deutscher Computerspielpreis (DCP), as the event is called in its native language, was held on May 11 for the first time since 2019 in front of a live audience. “Especially this year, game developers deserved such a big stage, because the award-winning games were created in the difficult conditions of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Felix Falk, Managing Director of the German Games Industry Association.
