November Gathering - 21st November 2006

Fellow Finnish Game Developers! A picture of our October Gathering made the front page of IGDA's international website ( 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 gatherings page: 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!


(* 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 Syvähuoko 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.

Join us to celebrate the on-going growth of the Finnish game development community!

See you there! Jyri - IGDA Finland Chapter Coordinator
