Time to warm up February by gathering at El Jefe on Tuesday 3rd February with all your favourite friends! Rovio has kindly sponsored our event, and not only that, we have a great presentation for the night!

Jyri Partanen from Rovio Entertainment will be speaking about great games and Rovio’s cloud services: how to grow a fan-base, engage your fans, and help fans pay you. He’ll offer you a sneak peek into how Rovio’s cloud services reach hundreds of millions of fans globally. He’s going to hatch the story on Hatch: a tool built for Rovio developers.

IGDA Finland January Gathering saw the start of a new year for the local game industry. Old friends caught up over a few beers. It was a nice and cozy atmosphere, a reprieve from the cold winter. Join us next time to kick off the start of the working year with style!

It’s 2015! I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and had a good time on New Year’s Eve – and if you made any resolutions, I wish you luck sticking to them!

While many things may and will change, one thing is for sure: IGDA Finland gatherings will keep on going and we welcome you to kick off 2015 by sharing a drink with your fellow developers at El Jefe. Happy New Year!

“Deck the hall with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la la…”

After the huge success of the IGDA Slush event it was time for the last IGDA Finland Gathering of the year. In November our usual hangout Bar & Club Adams had been through a face lift and the venue was upgraded into a Mexican style bar called El Jefe so our guests got to party in style. Our wonderful sponsor Supercell spread some Christmas cheer by giving out Christmas hats and drink tickets to everyone.

 

 

The Finnish games industry is growing and we have massive amounts of talent that makes us so awesome. Thank you to all of you who have made this year so special!

“Merry Christmas to all

Let’s raise our cups

Here’s to no more Game overs 

and endless 1-ups”

The next IGDA Finland Gathering is on Tuesday January 13th 2015. Come and welcome in the new year, IGDA style! ;)

This will be an event you don’t want to miss, so come and join us as we bid 2014 farewell with style. The event will take place on December 9, 2014.

We also have good news regarding Adams Club: the renovations at our venue are now finished, and due to the transformation they are now called El Jefe. Drop by and you’ll see why!
