SpielFabrique has arisen from a Franco-German games initiative which was organized by MediaDeals at the French embassy in Berlin in the course of the International GamesWeek in April, 2015. Besides numerous relevant partnerships inspired by Odile Limpach and Thierry Baujard since the foundation, there is also a close connection to the Franco-German Youth Office (OFAJ/DFJW). Apart from their commercial key activities, SpielFabrique has made it their business to profoundly encourage the know-how transfer and inter-cultural exchange between German and French project participants and to provide them with invaluable information on the German and French video games market.
SpielFabrique is willing to support at least five French and German start-ups per year. The plan is to support thirty companies within five years.
Since 2017, SpielFabrique develops hand in hand with Arte and the city of Strasbourg a yearly Franco-German video game co-production market.
