June Gathering: Playful interaction is the next trend in games!

Finnish casual game start-up Everyplay wanted to give a kick start to summer vacations on 10th of June when the last IGDA Gathering was held before the summer break.

IGDA June Gathering sponsored by Everyplay drew room full of developers to join the party. You could clearly notice the closeness of summer vacation because the chat went around summer plans more than work related stuff and industry news.

Jussi Laakkonen the CEO of Everyplay gave a short presentation of the company. For many Jussi was previously known as the Business Development Director of Bugbear. This time he talked convincingly about casual games and how the current games are just the tip of the iceberg. Everyplay believed tha games are for all and playful interaction is getting common outside game industry as well.

Everyplay is developing a platform which enables the creation of novel types of social games / web services. At the moment Everyplay is a team of five but they are looking for new talent to join the company. If you have what it takes and are willing to take the challenge, get in touch with Everyplay.

We will see you all again at the end of August with exciting news from the local game industry! IGDA team want to thank you all for a great season. Have a relaxing vacation and have fun!
