Finnish game developers reveal their daily lives in new YouTube series Devs

Finnish game developers are revealing what goes on behind the scenes when making games on a day-to-day basis in a new YouTube series called Devs.

The series' creators and core team are Vesa Raudasoja, a board member of the IGDA and Santeri Eloranta, who acts as Executive Producer.

The show will turn the camera on developers' daily lives and the games making processes in a series of 20-minute episodes. It will also promote Finnish developers and show what it is like to be a work in games in Finland.

The real deal

"The goal of the series is to highlight real information about game development instead of a superficial glimpse," said Raudasoja.

"I have followed the daily life of the games industry for 10 years and countless stories have been left untold. I want to emphasise why Finland is such an excellent country for game development, but on the other hand I want to show how many companies are struggling for survival."

Developers confirmed to appear in the series include Fingersoft and Piranh.io developer Kiemura. Both companies sponsored the pilot episode of the series.

You can watch the first 40-minute episode of Devs on its YouTube channel.
