|Lau and Dajana, killin’ it on the dance floor
Two weeks ago, we curated a showcase of indie games from around the Nordic region, as a part of the Nordic Game Conference 2010. The main event, on the Tuesday night before the conference, consisted of some presentations and short talks, followed by a lively party. It was a great night!
Jason Della Rocca gave an opening keynote, and then three pairs of developers presented each others games. We’ve been to enough conferences where developers “pitch” their own games, so we wanted to do something a little different, and a little more communal.

The highlight of the night was definitely the pairing of Press Play and Ludosity. Press Play brought a hilarious cardboard diorama to convey the physics-based ship-building fun of Bob Came In Pieces, and Ludosity reciprocated with a hysterically – how should I say? – “adult” interpretation of Max and the Magic Marker. I also enjoyed D-Pad Studio’s very thorough, thoughtful review of Frecle’s Youropa.

Thanks to everyone who attended, and to Jacob Riis and the rest of the conference crew for making it happen. Expect more of these events in the future!
