Apart from discussing esports, German Federal politics are highly scrutinised in another field of the games industry currently: The funding of games production in Germany. Last we heard, a further 33 million euros were dedicated by the Federal Gouvernment for games funding, but not through the usual fund at the Federal Ministry of Economy and Climate Action (BMWK), but through the office of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM), Claudia Roth.
