Past gaming events: gamescom digital 2021 (quick overview with social media)

gamescom 2021 was the second digital-only event in a row due to the pandemic, and even more than with devcom digital 2021, Twitter updates became numerous by the minute.

Taking place from August 25-27, 2021, and already previewed in the Upcoming gaming events: gamescom digital 2021 article, it was far shorter than devcom digital 2021, but was packed full with game trailers and info to write about. With my official EMR Twitter page, I tried to be up to date with news coming fast, at least during two evening TV shows. Exploring the Indie Arena Booth or browsing through the partners sections was a bit more fulfilling, though.

Saying goodbye to both @gamescom #gamescom2021 and @devcom_global #ddc2021 for today and this year, both featuring interesting #games, especially #indies, and talks

Combining devcom and gamescom wasn’t the best idea, but fortunately having both AAA and indie titles as well as promo material and more in-depth looks at game development was all worth the time and stress that comes with it. Expect some longer articles in the near future!

Being an avid gamer, cinemaniac, and bookworm in addition to other things the internet and new media present, I'm also very much into DIY music, rock and pop in particular. Writing short or longer pieces about anything that interests me has always made me happy. As both an editor for German website "Adventure-Treff" and UK website "Future Sack", I like to write reviews and news about recent developments in the movies, games and book industry.
