Helsinki, I love you!

January 29, 2013 in Bandello, Games, Love, Unicorn7

Helsinki is my favorite place for rebooting. When in Helsinki one year ago staying at Ville‘s place, I decided to stop slaving away for Bandello‘s then investor, CAT Science, and it took us until beginning of June to get rid of them (they tried some dirty tricks, but the law was on our side).

Last time in Helsinki, Tim Garbos and I gave a talk about and why game jams are awesome at the Assembly Summer (fantastic event with amazing developers and new best friends). Olli was a¬†fabulous¬†host and we all had a pretty epic night at Petri‘s place before Assembly (no further details).

This weekend in Helsinki, I was fortunate to be the jury at Finnish Game Jam, Helsinki, playing Joust in the Rovio office while throwing Angry Birds at Ville, crashing Unity‘s Helsinki office, sneaking around Frozenbyte‘s office, partying at Remedy‘s new office, visting Grand Cru‘s office post-jam, playing Badland with Johannas and Juhana for half a day and hanging out with my buddies Mikael, Pertti (aka Burt), Jouni, Arvi, Petri, Ville, Ville, Damien and Ramine and all my new best friends.

And on the plane home, I drafted my new game….more to come! Helsinki, I love you!!
