  • ALL THE RAVE: NORDIC GAME JAM 2015 PRE-PARTY

      So Nordic Game Jam 2015 is coming up this weekend (assuming you aren’t reading this from the future. If you are, I hope you had a blast). Anyway, as usual, Copenhagen Game Collective will be hosting the Pre-Party the night before, to get all you jammers in the mood for 48 hours of sitting…

    The Math of Who Took the Apple?

  • Nordic Game Jam Pre-Party 2012

    Wooha Nordic Game Jam is coming up really soon and we will, as always host a pre-party the day before. Why? Because you never have time to socialize during the jam. Use the pre-party to meet new people, hang out with old friends and get yourself pumped for the upcoming jam. Where and when?

  • 5 Minute MMORPG lives on!

    Seemingly out of the blue, Kotaku posted about 5 Minute MMORPG today. The publicity comes as a pleasant surprise because we actually haven’t thought much about the project in over a year. Just goes to show, sometimes you need to have a little patience. The best part of all the recent coverage is that there’s…

  • Simon Nielsen, Best New Nordic Talent!
