The awards were handed over yesterday as part of a grand gala at Westhafen in Berlin. The German Computer Games Award (Deutscher Computerpreis) is the most important award for computer games in Germany, sponsored by the Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur (BMVI), the two branch associations BIU – Bundesverband Interaktive Unterhaltungssoftware e.V. and GAME Bundesverband der deutschen Games-Branche e.V. as well as the Stiftung Digitale Spielekultur.

The Macromedia graduate Zein Okko achieved a fantastic success: he won the prestigious award for the second time in a row. His game „Code 7 - Episode 0: Allocation" was honored as the Best Youth Game in 2017 - a year before, Okko received the German Computer Games Award in the category "Best Staging" for Typoman.

Zein Okko: Successful with his own developer studio

Okko studied Digital Media Production (today: Game Design or Animation) at Macromedia University in Cologne and finished 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts. Until the end of 2015, he worked as a game designer, story writer and 2-D animator for the Bonn-based developer studio Brainseed Factory. In the meantime, Okko founded "Goodwolf Studio" together with a study colleague.
