Georg Hobmeier

Job title: Advisor

Project: Path Out

Georg Hobmeier, born and bred in the Tyrolean Alps, is a media artist and game designer whose work lingers in the borderlands of political communication, digital media and games. After a decade of developing art that was interfacing dance, theatre, and technology, he turned his attention to the development of games and interactive storytelling. His debut work, the mod „Frontiers“, received extensive media coverage (Zeit, Arte, …) and the Outstanding Artist Award of the Austrian ministry of culture in 2012. In 2014 he founded Causa Creations, a studio dedicated to social awareness and fundraising games. Recent project include The Fallen, Path Out, Nowhere Prophet and the game theatre project Vienna – All Tomorrows.

Awards for Path Out are always great, but the most important thing is, that I'm happy to have met Abdullah: a truly generous person that dared to share his exceptional journey with the world.

Please note that all bios refer to the time of winning the Award.
