  • Seattle, Plaid, and CPH Game Collective

    Hello from Seattle! Being here sure is a trip down memory lane! I’ve been busy reminiscin’ all week, and I’m burning to share this Plaid tune:

  • Nordic Game Indie Night 2010

    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.…

  • Weekly Music Tip, May 9 2010: The Dodos

    And here’s some perfect music for a sunny Spring day out in the clean mountain air: The Dodos are a big favorite in the Copenhagen Game Collective office! The band is based in San Francisco.

  • Weekly Music Tip, May 9 2010: Trans Canada Highway

    Happy Mother’s Day! Apropos of my trip to beautiful British Columbia, I couldn’t resist posting something from Boards of Canada, a band that’s been a major influence on some of us here in the collective. Here’s the breath-taking music video for “Dayvan Cowboy,” as featured on their 2006 EP, Trans Canada Highway, as well as…

  • 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…

  • Train Mafia, CPH Edition, Take #2

    In honor of Markus and Jaakko being in town, we decided to run Train Mafia on the CPH Metro for a second time. Witch hunt! This time around, the citizens won. But it went right down to the wire – to the final three. Exciting! The second game (on the “loser train”) was affected by…

  • Man on Wire

    Hello from beautiful Vancouver, Canada! On the plane ride over here (thank you KLM), I finally caught Man on Wire, a documentary about Philippe Petit’s legendary (and illegal) 1974 stunt where he tightrope-walked between the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers: The film is a must-see! It’s absolutely spell-binding – all the excitement of a good…

  • Simon Nielsen, Best New Nordic Talent!

    “Tillykke” to our resident artist and animator, Simon, for winning this year’s “Best New Nordic Talent” award! Simon won the award for his excellent work on Monkey Donk, one of coolest prototypes from this year’s Nordic Game Jam. Very well deserved, Simon! Simon is also an accomplished VJ, working under the pseudonym Oppe Om Natten…

  • Weekly Music Tip, May 2 2010: Noby Noby Boy OST!

    The Noby Noby Boy OST was finally released to iTunes this past week! Noby Noby Boy was my very favorite “game”  of 2009 – in no small part because of the music. On the surface of things, the game is very lighthearted and chaotic. Indeed, inflicting chaos on tiny digital worlds is the entire point.…

  • Kometen

    Our friend Erik Svedäng just announced his upcoming iPhone game, Kometen: Looks fantastic. And what a classy trailer! I particularly dig the music – apparently by Erik’s collaborator, Niklas Åkerblad.
