Welcome Gentle Troll Entertainment! Based on some 12 years of know-how we design and create your Serious Game for Web, PC and mobile devices.

We believe, games still hold vast uncovered potential to convey valuable information to players. We aim to use this potential for the better! That's why we have focused on making games, which explain complex correlations through play. They invite players to experiment, allowing them to reflect on their experiences and make their own deductions. At the same time, we avoid a wagging finger and emphasize on engaging gameplay instead to catalyze learning without removing fun, an important motivator. How does that works? Why not have a look at our award-winning mobile game "The Unstoppables" and see for yourself?

Are you sharing our vision and looking for a team to pour your concern into a Serious Game or Next Reality (VR / AR) application? Then, please, get in touch! We are eager to find out how we can help you best.



Just in time for Xmas season our latest game is hitting app stores: «Light on Earth» is an atmospheric puzzle adventure game about self-esteem, mindfulness and friendship developed on behalf of LerNetz AG for the Protestant-reformed national church of the canton Zurich.

Take some minutes off your busy day and dive into this atmospheric gem with outstanding art by Brian Main and heart warming music and effects by Filippo Beck Peccoz. Headphones recommended!


Fantastic: MeisterPOWER has been nominated for "Best Serious Game" at the prestigious Deutscher Computerspielpreis (German Video Game Award) 2018. The award ceremony will take place on April 10th in Munich. Naturally, we are super excited about the nomination, since it would be a big step for us to drive this baby home. Keep fingers crossed!

"Radicalization" was the topic of this year's game jam organized by the German Federal Agency for Civic Education. Our team (Gentle Troll & friends) created a game named "De-Republica", which picks up on current radicalization tendencies in politics: In this local multiplayer game, players have to push their increasingly perverting political agenda, secretly voting on various bills via their own smartphones. The aim is to achieve absolute power by radicalizing society.


We have kicked off this year with two additional partnerships with German universities: Besides our established cooperation with the junior professorship for Serious Games of the University of Ulm, we have now officially build up tighter relationships with the Creative Media Research and Development Group of the HTW Berlin. Moreover, we have partnered up with the Chair for Human-Computer Interaction of the University of Würzburg and are now looking forward to new collaborations on exciting Virtual, Augmented and Mixed Reality projects.


We were offered the fantastic opportunity to write up a development case study about our award-winning game „The Unstoppables“ for the internationally known Making Games magazine. Pick one up to catch a glimpse behind the curtains at Gentle Troll! (German reading skills recommended ;))


One of the first MeisterPOWER classroom playtests has received fantastic coverage by one of Germany's major craft-focused magazines. The article reflects pupils were engaged and learned valuable lessons about entrepreneurship and handicraft business. Mission accomplished! :)

It's here: our latest large-scale project, MeisterPOWER, is finally available! The Serious Game has been specifically designed for German school teaching and the learning progress is being scientifically measured by the University of Ulm – another huge achievement in the history of Gentle Troll!
