Become part of our vision

Welcome at grownarts
The Studio
The company grownarts is a sole proprietorship represented by Florian Haase. The company’s vision is to develop digital media and video games that deal with difficult and social (taboo) topics and motivate players to engage intrinsically and actively with these topics.

Players grow with their video game worlds, so not only do they grow and age, but so do their everyday challenges and stories. With its vision to make video games with difficult themes interactive, educational and yet entertaining, grownarts is a company with an extraordinary focus.

This vision will start with Paws and Leaves – A Thracian Tale and will address the topics of death and dying and at the same time inspire reflection and entertainment. In the near future, if the company continues to develop positively, it will be converted into a corporation in order to be able to drive the company and its projects forward.

The sole proprietorship also offers media training and continuing education. A cooperation with Kultur trifft Digital, from the Stiftung Digitale Chancen, has already been established to build further pillars of a company that will support the vision of an exceptional focus with digital media and video games.

Paws and Leaves

A Thracian Tale

Paws and Leaves – A Thracian Tale is a 3rd person adventure game in which the player will experience the journey of the cutest fox of foxes. His name is Me. The player is confronted with the beautiful and joyful, but also with the sorrowful and sad moments in the fox’s life.

Workshops

In addition to the development of video games, we would like to pass on our expertise and experience and, above all, teach our young generation a responsible approach to media through our workshops on the topics of video games and digital media. Florian Haase works as a media education specialist on behalf of Kultur trifft Digital on the road. From workshops dealing with basic computer skills to so-called Game Jam, up to basic courses in 3D engines like Unity, these are only a few topics for which we are happy to share our expertise and media competence with your target group. The duration of such an offer varies depending on the desired scope.

But it is not only our adolescent generation that is interested in media education and media literacy promotion. That’s why we also offer our workshops tailored to the target group of adult continuing education and training.
