Pocket Gamer's Helsinki Mobile Mixer: Hot topics in a cool climate

Pocket Gamer's Helsinki Mobile Mixer: Hot topics in a cool climate

The brightest and best from Finland and beyond gathered at Adams in Helsinki on 12 November for a night of heated discussion, warming drinks, and friendly faces at our latest Mobile Mixer.

Just ahead of Slush the following day, the evening was generously sponsored by Unity, Rovio & Everyplay.

Joining me on stage for some thoroughly engaging chat about a myriad of topics - ranging from the challenges of independent development, user acquisition, the global games market, and future innovation in mobile - were representatives from Gajatri Studios, Unity, Remedy Entertainment, Applifier, and Rovio.

Finnish fiesta

I'd always heard that Finnish audiences were quite reserved, but on a personal note I'd like to thank the crowd that packed Adams on the evening for their thought-provoking questions.

And a massive "thank you" goes out to our friends at IGDA and Facebook too, who shared the night with us and helped it be a really memorable occasion.

As per usual, our roving photographers were on-hand to capture the event. You can see the entire collection on our Facebook page.

If you missed out on the Mixer, head on over to our Eventbrite page and see the currently announced schedule of forthcoming Pocket Gamer events there, or pop on over to PGConnects.com for full information on a massive new event for 2014.

Die hard Suda 51 fan and professed Cherry Coke addict, freelancer Peter Willington was initially set for a career in showbiz, training for half a decade to walk the boards. Realising that there's no money in acting, he decided instead to make his fortune in writing about video games. Peter never learns from his mistakes.
