Fellow Finnish Game Developers! A picture of our October Gathering made the front page of IGDA's international website (http://www.igda.org/) with associated text saying "Finnish Queue of Death". That means excellent international exposure among the international game development community, which can only be a positive thing to the whole Finnish game development scene. This visibility, combined with the fact that our average attendance has risen to 3-digit numbers this season means that Finnish game development is gaining momentum. Let's keep the momentum going - join us at System Rock for our November gathering, two weeks from now, on Tuesday as usual.
Place: System Rock, Keskuskatu 4, 00100 Helsinki (same place, System Club just changed it's name to System Rock) (see map at igda.fi gatherings page: http://igda.fi/?page_id=5) Time: Tuesday 21st November, doors open at 19.00
As further proof of that momentum, it gives me great pleasure to tell you all that a new high-profile game developer has just opened its doors in Finland! And to celebrate this moment, they have shown great generosity and have agreed to sponsor our November Gathering!
DRINK TICKETS WILL BE SPONSORED BY RECOIL GAMES! *
(* 5 tickets per person, while tickets last. Doors open at 19.00 sharp.)
Recoil Games is a new next-gen console/PC game studio founded by Samuli SyvÃ¤huoko and several other Finnish game industry veterans. The company is currently in stealth mode, but will use the IGDA meeting to lift the covers a bit. However, there will be no speeches or powerpoints - just people you can talk with :)
Oh, and Recoil will be offering snacks to the 100 first attendees as well. http://www.recoilgames.com/
Join us to celebrate the on-going growth of the Finnish game development community!
See you there! Jyri - IGDA Finland Chapter Coordinator
