Following a busy GDC Europe, the NativeX team will be in Cologne, Germany for Gamescom from August 13-17. Gamescom is the largest games industry event in Europe, uniting over 350,000 European game developers and game enthusiasts to “Celebrate the Games.” Below I’ve compiled details about how to get the most out of your 2014 Gamescom experience with a list of parties, social media, directions to the Koelnmesse, and contact information for locating NativeX at this massive show.
Parties at Gamescom
As you can imagine with a crowd of 350,000 people, most of the parties at Gamescom are exclusive so you will need to network to get in. Some of the larger public parties include the Dead Island 2 Party on Wednesday (RSVP) and The Gog.com party on Thursday (RSVP). Pocket Gamer is also throwing another Big Indie Pitch on Tuesday (RSVP). If you’re going to be in town for GDC Europe, check out their party guide here.

Getting to Gamescom
Gamescom 2014 is being hosted at the Koelnmesse, located at Messeplatz 1 on the East side of the Rhein river in Cologne, Germany. There is construction in the area so the following routes are recommended: public transportation, car, and truck.
