Logbook: February 2017

In February we have continued on working with the same three main themes as in January too.

Finnish Game Industry report
The study is already in good shape, we have been finalising the texts and visuals are almost done. We are still waiting for some crucial information to be released from the few companies until we are ready to publish a study. We estimate it to be out on April.
Finnish Game Awards
Outi Tiainen joined Neogames Finland on February as an Awards producer. Due to new powers award’s practicalities, has started with full speed. Menus has been tasted, (vegetarian part was the best, even KooPee agrees). Invitations has been sent to the members of Suomen Pelinkehittäjät. We have started to work with awards graphics and voting for the awards winners is already done.
Game Connection America trade mission
Trade mission to Game Connection America was executed at the end of February. Since Neogames was present in both Game Connection and GDC, we took the advantage to build and renew our relations to South Korean partners and investors as well as keeping up the relations to Chinese partners and investors. Last year understanding the China market and connect with their partners was in our main market focus. This year we are aiming to learn and understand the South Korean market as well as building the relations with them.
Miscellaneous regular business
Some part of Neogames funding for year 2017 is now covered. We are still looking for additional funding in order to maintain existing level of activities.
As usual, during February we have been monitoring Play Finland Facebook group, conducting the newsletter of the weekly highlights.

Sincerely Yours,
KooPee, Suvi, JP and Outi
