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.
Host a game developer’s residency in spring, near easter…Easter Eggs!! = The Rabbit
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.
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!
The Rabbit is committed to enriching to the principles of diversity, inclusion and equity. We look forward to international and local Berlin/Brandenburg applicants. We expect to create a mixed group of individuals and teams. Candidates who demonstrate an ability to forward DEI goals are encouraged to apply.

Stuck finding that perfect gift this year? We near the end of 2021 and the time for the gift-giving season is upon us. After struggling with the enormous ups and downs of the last 2 years, the creative juices may just feel empty when trying to think of what to give your special people.
I truly believe in what we do here at Coconat, offering a place in the countryside where people from all walks of life can sit down to focus on their work and projects. Individuals can show up and instantly plug into the place and culture here, to get their head in the game.
Space to focus, structured days (including breaks), talk over ideas with new perspectives, breathe some fresh air in the forests, animal encounters, a quick swim, working in a hammock, chill in the library with piles of books you brought with…the list goes on and on… After nearly 5 years, Coconat is ready to host most.
