The German Computer Game Award is a great stage to honor the outstanding games of the year and the creative teams behind the games. We are therefore delighted that the 2022 award ceremony will once again be held locally in Munich and are keeping our fingers crossed for all the nominees," said Minister of State Judith Gerlach. The Bavarian State Ministry for Digital Affairs is sponsoring the German Computer Game Award 2022.
