After winning the silver award in Game Camps Riga Add Inspiration was qualifed for the Game Camps Accelerator Program.

"Game Camp is a great opportunity to meet new people within the industry, create a cross-border startup and learn about what it takes to succeed in the business.." http://gamecamps.eu Fanny Nilsson(SWE), Sasu Louke(FIN) and Silver Kontus(EST) won the 2nd place in GameCamps Riga 2017 Mosquito Racing - Super Amazing! Mosquito character buzzing around Mosquito characters concept art by Silver Kontus 48 h game concept challenge Sasu Louke, Co-founder and Creative producer in Add inspiration attended the Game Camps challenge in Riga, Latvia 2017. The challenge is a game industry hackaton, where about 100 game developers from Finland, Sweden, Estonia, and Latvia compete in game development. The challenge is to create game concepts and prototypes during 48 hours time limit in mentoring from game industry professionals. Mosquito Racing, Super Amazing was a game concept I had in mind for some time. One of those concepts I didn't have had time to put in; - a perfect case to be tested in a game jam / hackaton type of event. "I pitched the game to the Game Camps attendees, having a strong feeling that we could create something very interesting around these fun, maybe even ridiculously comedic characters. Apparently the pitch was a success, because we then formed a team around the concept with these super cool developers: an estonian Graphic designer (Silver Kontus) and a swedish programmer (Fanny Nilsson) and me (Sasu Louke); a Finnish game developer taking the lead programmer and producer role in the team." (Sasu Louke after Game Camps Riga..) Fun teamwork around game development So.. now we got the team formed.. and 48 hours to develop the concept and make a game prototype, with a freshly formed team who just met each other! And the level of competing teams was super high.. brilliant game ideas and passion for games, game developers from different countries came to Riga, there was around 100 attendees in Game Camps Riga, forming 15-20 teams.. Challenging.. Fun.. we made new friends and learned a lot! We succeeded to develop the game concept further, give the characters an unique look and a background story. Develop a functional game prototype for Android devices. It's a playable demo with one level, game graphics, animations, and even 3 music tracks for the game soundtrack produced within the 48 h time limit. Mosquitos, racing.. but they don't even know where they're facing... Mosquito Racing - Super Amazing is…
Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki (September 19-20, 2017) Add Inspiration attended the Pocket Gamer Connects Helsinki event organized by pocketgamer.biz During the event we attended The Very Big Indie Pitch pitching competition where the most promising indie mobile game companies pitch to a jury of industry professionals. TOP 5 / Mobile pitch In PGConnects Helsinki there was actually 3 different Indie Pitch categories: Mobile, PC, and VR -games. Add inspiration attending the Mobile pitch. The idea in The Very Big Indie Pitch is to pitch the game to a jury of some 20 to 30 members of the jury, during 20 minutes. So there's 6 tables, each with 2-3 jurymembers, then all the teams (PGConnects Helsinki there was 27 teams on the mobile pitch) pitch the game for 4 minutes per table, then switching to the next table. So that's very fast and intense pitching! After the pitches, top 5 will be selected to finals (Add inspiration made it in to the top 5!!) and at the end of the event theres an award ceremony and the top 3 will be announced. This was a very interesting experience and we met many interesting people in the event, met publishers, investors and other game developers. We were pitching Rooster Booster - the goofy clicker game Add Inspiration is developing for Android.
Add Inspiration pitching We qualified for pitching Add Inspiration for the Startupsauna accelerator program during their #100FinnishStartups tour through Finland. Of course we could not resist the excellent opportunity. During the sessions, we also got to 1 on 1 coaching sessions with the Startupsauna coaches. Sasu Louke pitching Add inspiration to Startupsauna 2017 Strong focus on brands As a startup on the game industry, Add inspiration is on a fast start! During the last 6 months we have started building the core team in the company, had valuable mentoring discussions with our Advisors and started to mint out our focus and identity as a game startup. Our vision is to become one of the top players in the industry, and the main focus is building interesting game brands with fun, relatable characters and rewarding gameplay. We want to surprise our players but that is not easily achieved. We believe that passionate people make the best game brands and the focus at this point is heavily on team building and game branding. We are building the core team, and a set of game brands. Currently focusing on the Rooster Booster game development, aiming to soft launch it early next year.
