Enjoy the September Edition of the Kolibri Games Newsletter. This is where we review the events of the past month and keep you updated on recent company and product milestones.
This month, we proudly presented our new company vision, setting big goals and shooting for the stars. Stay tuned to see where the journey takes us! Part of this vision is to go green. With this goal in mind, we are very excited to announce our partnership with Planetly, a Berlin based technology startup specializing in holistic carbon management. With the help of the Planetly platform, we will track and calculate our CO2 emissions. The long-term goal is to become carbon-neutral by reducing our emissions and offsetting the remaining CO2 output. In the future, we will share more about the different steps we are taking to reach this goal.

KOLIBRI GAMES EVENTS
This month, we enjoyed some home-cooked pasta (and vino) for our “Cooking with a twist” event night. Agnes Varda once said ’’You can buy a good pasta but when you cook it yourself, it has another feeling.'' And we can’t agree more – presenting and tasting 30 perfect pasta dishes at the end of the evening. In preparation for our next game jam, Game Designer Boris gave an intro class about the magic skill of being creative. We learned how to get into "open mode" to let our creativity flow and be well-prepared for brainstorming new game ideas.
