The German Computer Game Award will be awarded in 2024 in 15 categories to honor the best games from Germany and the creative minds behind the games.

The most highly endowed category is the “Best German Game”. For the first time, an award will be presented in the category “Best Story” at the DCP 2024.

The submission phase ends on January 19th, 2024 at 11:59 pm. Games released between the end of the last submission period on January 20, 2023 and the day of this year’s awards ceremony on April 18th, 2024 can be submitted. It is possible to submit titles in several categories. The situation is different for up-and-coming prototypes. These must not have been published before the award ceremony. For the “Best Innovation and Technology” category, not only classic computer games but all innovative games-related projects are eligible. The winners are determined in a two-stage process by expert juries and a main jury.

Games worthy of an award are characterized by high quality, i.e. they offer gaming fun, are culturally and/or educationally valuable and/or technically or otherwise innovative.
