InnoGames held its second charity fund raising event this past weekend dedicated to the often overlooked art behind games. The art exhibition, which took place on April 16th in the company’s Hamburg headquarters, included a silent auction, where the public could bid on private art collections, as well as concepts from InnoGames’ own studios, and attend workshops lead by InnoGames artists. All proceeds from the event will go to Gaming Aid Initiative.
Around 330 games enthusiasts attended the exhibition. Workshops included ‘character development’, ‘spitpainting’ and ‘VFX’.
To further bring attention to the importance of art in the gaming industry, InnoGames released a video titled: “How the Mobile Revolution Changed Game Art”. The four-minute piece details how game artists adapt to modern day constraints.
With about 150 million registered players, InnoGames is one of the world’s leading developers and providers of online games. Currently, the Hamburg-based company employs about 400 professionals from over 30 nations. InnoGames has scored major success with games such as Tribal Wars, Grepolis and Forge of Empires.
