Frequently Asked Questions

What does the Tampere Game Hub provide?

Think of Tampere Game Hub as an umbrella organization for all the companies in the region. We want to provide mentoring, networking opportunities, business delegations, office spaces, special equipment for game developers and developer gatherings in the Tampere region. Additionally, we will host incubation programs and special events that link other cities to game development talent in Tampere.

Why Tampere?

The better question is, why not? Tampere is the second biggest city of Finland already full of amazing game studios. The opportunities in the city are insane for growth of companies and talented game developers. Even if you are just starting your game development career, you’ll do better here than the capital, thanks to our supporting organizations and tightly-knitted community with a friendly atmosphere.

How many game companies are in the Tampere region?

There are over 30 game development companies in Tampere according to this list from Neogames. Our database also includes game teams (not yet registered companies) which might differ from the official listings.

How do I join? How much does membership in the Tampere Game Hub cost?

Membership is free! You just have to be an active senior member of a game company. We will give you access to your own company profile. Later, we might induct other members from all around the scene – once we’ve got a healthy chunk of active game companies in the area.

I’ve got a game studio in the region not yet on the list, how do I add it?

Ping toikka@tampere.games with your game studio details and we’ll hash it out.
