Casual Connect is Europe’s biggest symposium for casual games. This year’s conference took place in Amsterdam from the 16th to the 18th February and, just like every other year; GameDuell was in attendance alongside a whole variety of international games experts.
At GameDuell we want to entertain players of all ages and give them a good time. With this in mind, we actively support initiatives which promote computer literacy and technology skills.
On 11 February 2016 the Hazelcast CEO will speak about the standardized Java caching layer API JCache.

Once a year the giant Fluffy, who inhabits our lounge, is transformed into a ghastly Halloween ghost and celebrates along with our equally hauntingly disguised team members at our spine-tingling Halloween party!
GameDuell chooses one project each quarter for a donation to a charity project. This time, we decided to support ‘Die Gelbe Villa’ in Berlin, a creative and educational center for children and youths.
The best way to bring people together isn’t just games – it’s food! That’s why every once in a while we invite all new team members to the Newbie Cooking Session, where we all get to know each other while preparing a meal and welcome aboard our newcomers. Currently, GameDuell has 215 members from 35 different countries – but, with the effort of our amazing HR team, this list is expanding every month.

Computer skills are becoming increasingly important nowadays. They can not only open new doors into the job market, but also help with better exploiting one’s personal potential. This is why we gladly contributed to Non-Profit Organization AMANDLA’s computer training project in Cape Town with a monetary donation. The training provided 15 young adults aged between 18 to 25 with a certified education in computer usage.
On the 10th of September, Berlin witnessed the final round of the biggest company run in the country – the B2RUN. The sporty team of GameDuell couldn’t, of course, ignore an event of such importance and on a stormy Friday afternoon 9 of us went to the monumental Olympiastadion to take part in a 6km long run with other 14 000 participants.
