  • Open Call: Nordic Sensation Award 2017

    For the past 7 years, together with external curators, we have been putting together an Indie Night showcase celebrating the variety of exciting indie projects from the Nordic region. Over the years we have seen a number of exciting, creative games and each year one of those games has gone on to win the Nordic Indie Sensation…

  • Discover the new Indie Day

    During the last many years, or even since the term was conceived, the question of what indie games are has been slung around. It is not even a novel dilemma, and neither unique to games. Music has gone through the “indie” discussion and subsequent “revolution”. We, that is the Copenhagen Game Collective, have never concerned…

  • The Well Played Award Show

    We just came back from Paris where we hosted the best award show that IndieCade Europe has ever had. It was also the first award show that IndieCade Europe ever had. And the first IndieCade Europe that Europe ever had. Dealing with so many firsts means that we took as much risk as possible. Because…

  • Pokémon GO: Pervasive Gaming for Everybody

    At the collective we’ve been active in playing the cities and the streets for many years. We’ve played games in public and have looked very awkward in doing so, at times. We’ve conducted festivals about and designed games for public play. And while the reception of those games has usually been great we never expected any…

  • Lyst on the Rocks

    written by Ida Toft and Sabine Harrer Soaked in love, smiles, and comfortably overstimulated, we returned from this year’s Lyst Summit and Game Jam. We noticed quickly that Lyst’s mission to “celebrate Love, Romance, and Sex in Games”, had caught on: These were some rather flirty, rousing  48 hours. In what follows, we’ll report from our experience…

  • Going in Deaf: Post-Mortem of The First Roger Corman Jam

      On a sunny spring afternoon in Copenhagen, a bunch of game makers got together to do something else. Something weird, unexpected, maybe scary. During the very First Roger Corman Jam we were handed a silenced 1-2 minute trailer by the legendary B-movie director and had four hours to rescore it. The day ended with…

  • Nordic Game Indie Day and Night 2016

    After six very successful editions of the Nordic Game Indie Night, it’s time to expand and shake things up a bit. We have showcased many wonderful Nordic indie games and thrown many great parties. Traditionally it has been a pre/party to Nordic Game, but this year we have evolved! For Nordic Game 2016 we have…

  • NG16 Indie Sensation Award nominees

    (this post appeared first on nordicgame.com) The biggest overall change to this year’s Nordic Game conference, 18-20 May, in Malmö, Sweden is that the popular Indie Night event has been expanded to an entire Indie Day & Showcase on 20 May, dedicated to the vibrant indie scene in the Nordic region and abroad. Highlight of…

  • NORDIC GAME INDIE SENSATION 2016: THE CURATORS

    Now that Nordic Game has announced the nominees, we would like to give some attention to the people who helped us make the tough decisions. As we announced earlier, the Collective returns to Nordic Game bigger and better than ever, with Nordic Game Indie Day. The Indie Sensation award will be part of the Nordic…

  • ALL THE RAVE: Nordic Game Jam 2016 Pre-Party

    A party to get all you jammers in the mood for 48 hours of sitting in one place staring at a monitor. This year it will be bigger than ever before and that’s why we are having it at Pumpehuset. There will be an arcade of the newest coolest indie games together with some nordic…
