The Rabbit – Games Residency

still a few places left – Deadline extended to 4 March!

This one-month games developers’ residency is a unique opportunity to go down the rabbit hole and develop immersive games right in Brandenburg’s hoppinest Manor House Coconat.

Why The Rabbit?

Host a game developer’s residency in spring, near easter…Easter Eggs!! = The Rabbit 


Build your Game

The residency is free, funded by the Medienboard Berlin-Brandenburg. During the one-month residency, developers work on the games of their dreams. We are looking for developers who make compelling immersive work. 

During the 4 weeks at Coconat you will make significant progress on your project:  make a demo, a crowd-funding build, or finalize your release, the world is your egg-shell (…er oyster). In our manor-house you can work in the Salon, a shared workspace and game-making lab. We will invite experts to mentor you on the way.

You can expect workshops, skill-shares, testers, and  inspirational excursions whilst living with a game-making community of 15 developers at Coconat.

Build your Audience

During your stay, you’ll get the chance to build your fan-base early. We will publish your progress so your supporters can follow you early on and see how you advance.

You can expect video and photo content produced to tell your stories along the way!



  • An active professional practice which includes any of the following: game or play-related artistic work, commercial or indie game development, game-related asset production / technical art, game-related research / scholarship.
