Kick the Summer off right, join us on May 3rd for a truly jam-packed set of events. Before the IGDA Finland May Gathering, IGDA Finland Presentations brings you "The Different Faces of Change" a program done in association with the University of Tampere about change in the game industry.
Here is a short preview of presentation:
"The only thing that is stable is change itself." This phrase goes hand in hand with game developers. There are at least five different levels of turbulence that people have to deal with when innovating games. Researcher Annakaisa Kultima, from the University of Tampere will open up these thoughts as the overarching theme within the findings of two game research projects: GaIn and GIIP."
The presentation will feature industry fellows that will elaborate the topic further in the following speeches: * Ilari Kuittinen, Housemarque: "Same Same, But Different" * Teemu Vilén, Turmoil Games: "(Re)emergence of Adventure Games" * Ari Nykänen, Kuuasema: "Turning to Indie: Postmortem of Supersonic" * A Guest Appearance of Jason Della Rocca, Perimeter Partners: "Sex with Daphnia"
Following this event we will HOP :D on over to Cuba bar where Uplause will be showing off the World premiere of massively multiplayer audience games "pub edition." Also a taste of Housemarque's Outland with free drinks for those who arrive early. :)
So mark the date and make sure you join us for this fantastic Summer kick-off!
