  • Leena Romppainen: “New copyright legislation was changed radically at the last minute, we’ve put up a citizen initiative to push back. Copyright legislation has quite far-reaching consequences, for example if automatic takedowns get implemented and consumers and creators won’t have a reasonable way to contest takedowns.”

  • Tuomas Pรถyhtรคri is looking for a graphic artist to collaborate with they on space 4X strategy game Ephemeris. To describe it simply, it is like Master of Orion or Stellaris with combat inspired by Homeworld and Total War. The focus of the game is in the fully 3d real time combat with realistic physics never before seen in this genre.ย  As there is no publisher or external funding yet, personal interest in this genre and this game would be very important. The compensation model can be discussed but the best option at the moment would be a payment based on income from the game.ย  So if you have the skill and the motivation to be part of the next hit strategy game by designing the look, drawing UI panels, illustrating different alien species and everything in between or if you just want to discuss more please contact me at yrdvaab@gmail.com or send a private message here on Facebook!
