We support you in realizing your concept in different stages.

Realizing the best version of your idea is a challenging process– it’s relatively easy to experience setbacks, to doubt your own decisions or to get lost in translation with project partners or funders. Once you are in the middle of things, finding time for reflection und purposeful action is just as challenging as getting a fresh perspective on what’s actually happening right now. It is essential to identify the turning points where a product or project loses its potential impact or power and to tune in to save it.

Playful Solutions likes to show up when things get challenging. We apply our unconventional thinking and our skills in coaching and facilitation to bring you back on track.

We will use what we like to call our UFO perspective to provide honest feedback, identify obstacles, help you refocus on what’s important and go beyond common approaches to support you in  solving your challenges.


If you are interested in working with us, shoot us a quick email and we’ll arrange a call or meeting!

Red Bull Mind Gamers Championship

“Mission Unlock Enoch” is the first-ever Escape Room World Championship, where we put the smartest masterminds out there to the ultimate test.
After more than 75 qualifier events hosted in 22 countries, the 22 national winner teams + 2 Wildcard teams headed to Budapest in 2017, to test their mental acuity at the Escape Room World Finals.


Playful Solution had the project lead and Konstantin chaired as gaming director.


We Make Games

In it’s first round, We Make Games reached 50 teachers, 25 schools and probably a 1.000 students in Austria. After gaining know-how in how to teach game design in the classroom, teachers went back to their schools and helped students to design their own serious games. The best ideas were realized with the help of professional game designers and developers.

Playful Solution had the idea and project lead. This project is financed by the ministry of education. More here.

Crossing Borders

A game and mobility app that motivates users to explore unfamiliar but more sustainable mobility options, using theoretical findings on player types and mobility styles. On of the aims was to learn more about the actual impact of game elements on behavioral changes. Partners included Verbund, Siemens, Fluid Time, ovos media and AIT.
