Community update (Covid-19)

Dear community,

These are trying and tumultuous times. Covid-19 is causing large scale disruption of societies throughout the world, affecting all of our daily lives. 

The game industry is as far as we can tell, doing it’s best to keep calm and carry on, with many studios adapting and sending people home to work remotely. Still, we’re seeing canceled trade shows and delays of both hardware and game releases as a result of the virus. On a positive note people seem to be playing more games, with Steam reporting an all-time high of concurrent users on their platform, likely due to people staying at home. 

Game Habitat is also working remotely for the time being and will be supporting our community in the best way we can. 

Events that were planned for the spring will be postponed or moved online. 

DevHub is in operation, but is closed for external visitors. 

We recommend all of our community members to join the Game Habitat Community Discord server where we can share news, updates and resources, and support each other.

Please follow the guidelines set by the authorities, enact social distancing to the best of your ability and remember that this is temporary and that we will get through it together. 

Expect more updates from us as things develop.

Stay safe,

The Game Habitat team

Southern Sweden and Malmö has in record time become one of the hotspots of game development, and is now one of the densest game communities in Europe with more developers and studios per capita than even London and Stockholm.
