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.

Interactive window shopping and gaming experience

Posted by Janne Saarikko on March 18, 2009

This is so interesting. On my way home yesterday I heard a voice across the street calling: “Hey bypasser! Come closer and touch the screen!” I saw a window of a shop having a screen with this guys face smiling. I had to run across and look further…


(edit: WordPress – Ovi are not very good with each other.

This link should get you to the video.

Your task is to break the bubbles while the time is running. For each section, there is a book under it, and you are awarded 10% off the price of that particular book. The call to action is “walk inside the bookstore and get 10% off from these three books”.

It’s really simple, but it seems to be attracting people, since there were some 16K games played (dunno the timeframe). This is not a high-traffic pedestrian street. In better location with more addictive gaming experience (toplists etc) it would be collecting crowds, I reckon.

I anyone knows who did this applications, please let me know. I want to talk to you!
