It was great to see so many people at the IGDA gathering last Tuesday! It was really cool to showcase the footage to Finnish game developers. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive which was nice, too! 🙂
Here’s what the IGDA organizers had to say:
Name of the Game
Last but not least, we got a teaser sample from Name of the Game. What started as a marketing video about Housemarque’s still very hush-hush game project collaboration with the arcade game legend Eugene Jarvis has now turned into a full-length film production.
The New Dawn camera crew has been following the development process for 18 months now, and while Mikael Haveri, the Head of Self Publishing from Housemarque told us that at first they felt a bit shy and may have needed a beer to relax in front of the cameras, they have now become a natural part of the process. We can attest to that, having seen his butt in some epic ice swimming scenes!
The film will follow the key moments of the project, but it also dives into the lives of the devs outside the project. Release is expected after the game – still unnamed – is released, but we can’t wait to see the result!
