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