Nordic Game partner Invest in Skåne has a special message for the Nordic Game community this November:
Try out one of the most thriving game industries in the world and experience the laidback southern Sweden lifestyle for yourself. We offer you access to a fully furnished office at the community coworking space Game Habitat DevHub in Malmö. Free of charge. No strings attached. With extra topping.
Malmö is home to over 70 studios and game developer communities. That’s 4.8 more game studios per capita than in London, or so says Business Insider. The southern gem, which is just a 20-minute train ride from Copenhagen, can boast of about 100 graduates per year from the world’s top game developer schools – The Game Assembly. Nordic Game Conference, one of Europe’s most influential conferences, is also hosted in Malmö.
A few big names that might ring a bell with you; Massive – Ubisoft, Tarsier Studios, King, IO Interactive, Paradox and Sharkmob; all have offices in Malmö – and most of them are actively recruiting and looking for collaborations, too.
Oh and also; we take it you’ve heard of Ubisoft’s new Star Wars game? Well, that’s a Malmö baby too.
Malmö is not alone in the Skåne region. Up the coast is Helsingborg, a historic coastal town, which is home to yet more development talent, such as Pixelbite, creators of mobile strategy title Xenowerk Tactics, along with localisation specialists Localize Direct. Another key asset of the region is Lund, boasting the oldest university in Sweden – rated amongst the top 100 in the world.
So what’s the deal?
Invest in Skåne, the official trade and investment promotion agency for Skåne, and the region’s game community organisation Game Habitat, offers you a unique opportunity to explore the southernmost part of Sweden and experience its thriving game industry. We sponsor a fully furnished office for 2-3 persons at the coworking space DevHub in central Malmö, which is at your disposal – and absolutely free of charge. Besides the office space you get access to community canteen, full support from Invest in Skåne, including networking, setting up meetings with interesting peers within games, benchmarking, and relevant data for your business.
Become a Nordic Game partner
Nordic Game would not be celebrating its twentieth edition this November without the tremendous support of our sponsors and partners. Many of them have already signed-up for our fall conference online, as well as our return to Slagthuset in Malmö next May, but we’re always ready to welcome new partners.
