Anja Krendlinger


Anja Krendlinger has been with Games/Bavaria since November 2023. As Junior Project Manager, she supports the team primarily in community & event management, but also with streaming topics.

She was born and raised in Bavaria with 3 dialects (Bavarian, Franconian, Swabian) and studied Interactive Media (B. Sc.) at the University of Applied Sciences in Augsburg. In addition, she worked as a freelance streamer for over 5 years and has already supported Games/Bavaria through streaming and moderation.

In her private life, Anja naturally prefers to be behind the screen and in various game worlds, but she also likes to play analog games from time to time. She enjoys exploring topics such as media education and digitalization. And when she finds some time in between, she starts a new creative hobby.

Contact Anja if you are looking for information about the Bavarian game dev community or events in Bavaria!

Alexandra Palme


Alexandra Palme has been with Games/Bavaria since November 2023. As Project Manager, she is responsible for the GamesWERK mentoring program, plans events, supports the Bavarian industry with location marketing and helps shape the public image of Games/Bavaria.

If you would like to find out more about GamesWERK mentoring, have suggestions or requests for exciting events or are considering joint projects for the Bavarian games industry, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Alexandra.
