A MAZE. / Berlin 2019

8th International Games and Playful Media Festival



Since 2012 A MAZE. awards The Most Amazing Game. The winner is selected by an interdisciplinary, international and 100% independent jury. We extended and changed awards in the many years since, our categories are now: “Most Amazing Award”, “Human Human Machine Award”, “Long Feature Award”, “Digital Moment Award”, “Explorer Award” and “Audience Award”.

Developers can register or use a previously used account to submit their game (for all award categories - those are choosen by the jury, submission-fee €30 – €50) between November 19th, 2018, and February 4th, 2019. Check the Conditions of Participation.

Judges can register or reactivate a previously used account to test games as part of the selection committee between November 19th, 2018, and February 11th, 2019. To reactivate an account, simply log in after November 19th, 2018 and set yourself available in your profile for 2019.

More about the award categories

The most amazing trophy consists out of three independent elements: a pink silicone cube, a metal ball and a concrete socket. Thorsten S. Wiedemann, the director of A MAZE. explains: "The pink silicon stands for interactivity and playfulness, the concrete socket for culture and meaning, and the embedded metal ball for connectivity and completeness."
