Ex-Rovio, Remedy, Guerrilla, and Digital Chocolate devs form Helsinki GameWorks
A band of Finnish game development veterans have joined forces to launch new studio, Helsinki GameWorks.

The new firm's 11 strong team consists of senior figures and gaming moguls from all corners of the nordic games industry, with members heralding from big-name companies such as Rovio, Remedy, Digital Chocolate, and Guerrilla Games.

The new studio will focus on accessible mid-core games, and the team are aiming to get the ball rolling on their first project, a physics based free-to-play experience.

Creatives assemble!

Kalle Kaivola, Rovio's former SVP of Product, will be taking on the role of CEO at the new outfit, and has explained that passion, along with a shared mobile vision, drives the studio.

“I am thrilled to announce our team, which has worked the breadth of the industry and has come together to realize a shared vision of modern mobile games," explained Kaivola.

"This team works out of a passion for delivering deeply captivating experiences for the contemporary gamer".

An enthusiasm bunch of veterans

What do you call someone who has an unhealthy obsession with video games and Sean Bean? That'd be a 'Chris Kerr'. Chris is one of those deluded souls who actually believes that one day Sean Bean will survive a movie. Poor guy.
