Worlds collided!

Kaljameri Games represented the game development course yesterday at Maailmojen Törmäys ("Collision of the Worlds") workshop arranged by EXPA Game Business Co-operation, Jykes and City of Jyväskylä.

The participants included city officials, local game companies and game development students from two departments of JAMK University of Applied Sciences and from Jyväskylä Game Lab. The purpose of the day was to collide two different worlds - city administration and game development - to find solutions for real world issues, such as waste management or city centre traffic arrangements. At the end of the day, each group had planned the next action to be taken on each issue.

The workshop was extremely interesting and inspiring. We hope that also the "other side" feels that they are getting benefit from it and that the workshop becomes a regular event. Huge thanks from Kaljameri Games to all who made such a day possible!
