Just as strong as production in Berlin is computer game research. Research is being conducted, for example, at the digraec (Digital Games Research Center) in the areas of media studies, pedagogics, psychology, design, media law, information technology and cultural history or at the gameslab, the interdisciplinary research center at the University of Applied Sciences. 

Earnings are always based on professional experience and depend on each particular company. A software developer can earn a gross entry salary of about 42,000 euros a year, and a junior game designer about 30,000 to 36,000 euros. As soon as you've mastered the fundamentals of your job, everything comes down to talent and negotiation. Get on the job search! It's worth it.
