THE GAMES OF FINLAND: STORIES OF THE DOMESTIC GAME INDUSTRY

Juho Kuorikoski



 

For years, the gaming industry has been at the forefront of Finnish cultural exports. Dozens of games are released annually, and the industry is brimming with excellent games and entertaining stories.


In "The Games of Finland," Juho Kuorikoski, a top-tier game writer, takes a closer look at some of the best and most interesting Finnish games released from 2014 to 2020. Titles such as "Legend of Grimrock 2," "Cities: Skylines," "Control," "Brawl Stars," "Baba is You," and "Druidstone" are among those featured. Additionally, the book explores phenomena like e-sports and examines the prospects for the future.


Within the book, gaming industry professionals and experts openly discuss both the recipes for success and their failures. Among those sharing their insights are individuals like Ilari Kuittinen, Petri Järvilehto, Touko Tahkokallio, and Mariina Hallikainen. At the same time, the book reveals how hits from top game studios are born, how to rise above difficulties, and in what ways Finnish phenomena, such as ice fishing and car customization, are transformed into games.
