A Package Of Eagles!

This week I joined the Tuff Tanks project at work. Tuff Tanks is our newest game, to be published for iPad, if you want to see the trailer, click here. This means I’m now involved in two games. Exciting but challenging at the same time! We are making Tuff Tanks together with Aeria Games, and the game will launch this spring.

Anyways, here’s some selected photos of what’s been going on at work for the past two weeks!

Our awesome concept guy has been making concepts for a new enemy to roam the world of MilMo. Nothing is decided yet, but things are looking good!

Some colored concepts of the new enemy. This is still work in progress and stuff will change.

Made this and put it in the office kitchen. It's not my original idea, but I like it so much I want to pass it on!

Our CEO Ola got us a box of eagles this week. Sweet!

 

Game Developer Beer & Cool Spider

Easter is closing in. I’m going to Finland in order to meet with my family, which is nice. I wish it didn’t take me 12 hours to travel from Malmö to Finland…Last time I went home was this fall, about 5 months ago. That’s not OK. Family and friends are what matters the most in my life, I should be better at prioritizing them. Last time I went home I held a lecture at my old school about what’s it like to study game development. Hopefully I inspired someone to take the chance!

Here’s some pictures from my phone, from the last 2 weeks. I went to Swedish Game Awards: South in order to hold a lecture about metrics and how metrics guided game design can help the game designers when making a game more fun. Fun stuff to meet with some other game developers and game students! It was cool meeting the guy who wrote the story for “Amensia”. That game is super scary! I was really amazed when he told the audience they are 8 developers working on the company (Frictional Games), and they meet by Skype o_o

Junebud (where I work) attended SGA-S. The makers of "Amnesia" held a interesting lecture about game writing!

Awesome spider is awesome! Found this on my way home from last week's game developer beer in Malmö!

Some sort of art stuff near the Western Harbor in Malmö. In the background you can see Malmö's only skyscraper "Turning Torso".

Nice street art near my gym. Have no idea if it's legal or not :D

I collect pics of beautiful skies <3 This sky was seen on my way home from IKEA :)

Germany and back


Friday at work, my tea consumption is sky rocketing...

So this weekend I went to Siegen in Germany to visit my dear friend Marit. We have known each other since we both went to Uni in Skövde. She was an exchange student at the time and very keen to learn about Swedish culture and the language. Sometimes I forget I have  actually moved abroad to Sweden to work and study. Finland and Sweden are very similar if you look to the culture, but not if you compare the language. Swedes also tend to be more open and talkative.

A really old house in Siegen, Germany.

I really hate flying, but that does not stop me from visiting places and ppl I really love. It feels like every time I’m flying I’m sure it will be my last flight. I try to think about the fact that a plane is probably one of the safest places you can ever be. The plane itself if controlled and tested, the pilots and the crew had many hours of training and the cargo and the passengers are very well checked. Each year about 2000 ppl are killed in plane accidents, and even if you are experiencing an accident there’s a big chance you will survive. So, I trust the numbers to feel safe. And some happy music in my earplugs. And something sexy to read to distract me. Whatever floats the boat, right?

 

Some street art

Siegen is a relativity big town, located near Dusseldorf and Köln. The weekend was nice, we watched some Sex and the City, eat good food and took a stroll around Siegen. I realised I actullay understand some German. It’s not that hard if you know Swedish and English.

A package of Russian candy!

Marit celebrated her birthday on Sunday, and got such a cool gift from her brother; a package full of Russian candy! It was so much fun, since neither of us know the Russian alphabet we just had to guess what the candy tasted like. I mean, some of them had pictures of air planes, bears and flowers on them. Not likely the candy will taste of air planes or bears…

 

MilMo themed body wash?!

Look at this, I found some MilMo-themed body wash (or shampoo?) at Marit’s place! I think it has something to do with a contest on Facebook?

Tonight it’s time for a beer with my friends in Malmö : ) Take care!

 

Weekly Work Photos Week 8 2012

Tuesday was celebrated as “Fettisdag” in the Nordic countries!

It’s been another week at Junebud, and this one was filled with sugar and sweets! We celebrated the “Fettisdag” on Tuesday at the office, eating traditional baked goods known as “Fastlagsbulle” or “Semla”. If you follow many Swedes on Twitter you probably had your share of tweeted pictures of our strange semlas…Ivan, our newest Crew Member from Brazil, told us that same Tuesday is celebrated in Brazil as well!

Om nom nom!

On Wednesday I took a stroll around Malmö and shot some photos of the neighborhood, and doesn’t it look idyllic? In Sweden Malmö has quite a bad reputation for being “Crime City #1”, but I think most of that is just prejudicial. It’s still more dangerous to live and party in Sweden’s capital: Stockholm. As usual, if you don’t go looking for trouble, trouble is less likely to find you.

 

Malmö!

This past weekend I went to Skövde, the town where I studied game development. It was sweet pain as usual to meet with old friends, chat with new ones and I visited the game company Pieces Interactive. My first job ever was as a QA tester for their game Puzzlegeddon. Nice to see they are doing so well at the moment : D

Cozy, right?

Gonna post more pictures of the weekend as soon as I have the time. Right now it feels like 24h is not enough time for one day, I got so much to do. Have a nice idea for a small photo project of my own and tomorrow it’s time to meet with my small “Hat Game” crew, on Skype. More concepts needs to be done! See you later!
