Karin Ryding & Bobbi Augustine Sand -“How to make a Kickstarter with Magic Tea!”
Karin Ryding is based in Malmö, Sweden. She started her career as a programmer but left the crashing web industry in 2002 and began to study games. Surprised and frustrated to find so few women in her class she became co-founder of SuperMarit – a EU funded project about women and games. In 2006 she went on to found Ozma Games together with Bobbi A. Sand under the motto: “Everyone has the right to play”.
Bobbi loves subcultures, playfulness and to write stories about queer emo kids. She’s been working with games in Ozma since 2006, and designed everything from board games to location based games. Right now working on the creative word game Words of Oz, and the crafts inspired Patchwork of Oz.

Digitally mediated spiritual edutainment.
A vocal multiplayer game that a whole crowd can play simultaneously using their voices as a controller. The players must wuuuuuu at the Wuuuuuuuu!
SsL is a Copenhagen-based game- and sound designer and musician. When she is DJ’ing, she likes to mix new and old synthesized music with experimental rock’n’roll, sleaze, exotica and soundtracks.
We are a duality.
We are many.
We cannot be defined
We are an unlikely union.
We write our own bios.
But we are not that good at it.
Preparation: Rub the rim of the bassline with the kick to make the beat stick to it. Shake the other ingredients with ice, then carefully pour into the glass (taking care not to dislodge any risers). Garnish with indie game sfx and serve over ice.
Served: On the rocks; turn up to 11, poured over ice with loads of low frequencies.
