Finnish game industry celebration

Posted by Janne Saarikko on July 28, 2009

It’s been a bit slow on the communications front lately. Not to worry, we’ve just been out enjoying the summer and starting new things.

June 12th was the day when the Finnish game industry companies located in K30 (Kalevankatu 30) complex had their summer party. K30 summer party had Mahtava Development, Mr. Goodliving, Recoil Games, Housemarque and Sauma as organizers.

It was a great party with all the hot names in gaming present. A big thanks to the organizers!

I used the opportunity to talk to some interesting people. Here are the three videos:

Teppo Kotirinta of NordKapp. Teppo talks about the company, co-op with IDEO and his views on the future.

 

Petri Talala of Lapland Studios. He talks about Nightwish music video, Nintendo Wii game and game development for unannounced Samsung device!

 

Introducing the traditional Finngaming drink, GC. This was consumed in large volumes during the party.

Office Nomad will be watered in November!

Posted by Janne Saarikko on July 1, 2009

Yes, this is great news. Today I visited the office of Veen Waters, the real design water brand of Finland. We agreed that the office nomad will be working with them for the month of November.

I’ve been following the story of Veen from the beginning, and I’ve admired the touch and drive these people have. They are not afraid of any established player or authority. They are doing things their way.

Our talks have been very, very exciting, and I believe there will be some very special things happening during that month.

I am a believer of good design, thus having unopened bottles of the original Veen 66 by Antti Eklund and Long John 33, both from the first production patches.
