When a gaming company is throwing a party or a conference, you know that you want to be there. When this company is Supercell, you know that you will do anything in your power to be invited. We just got off-call with Heini Vesander, PR Lead of Supercell, who told us about an upcoming gaming conference & festival - Free Your Play 13, that will take place in Helsinki on the 19th of June.
Heini told us that way too many gaming conferences are actually too much alike with normal ones. Supercell wants to change that by making an event that is to be remembered. After all it is not just a conference but also a festival with live music, food, bevarages and performances including a Swedish indie rock band - The Sounds.
The conference itself will focus on free to play gaming and Supercell invited truly legendary keynote speakers such as the creator of Dungeon Keeper, Populous and Black & White - Peter Molyneux. Of course GungHo Online (Daisuke Yamamoto) and King.com (Tommy Palm) will also speak at the event. For those of you that don't know, GungHo Online is currently the second biggest publisher by monthly game revenue after Supercell and King.com is the third according to the latest App Annie Index. Last but not least is Tom Putzki from Wargaming, the company that brought us 'World Of Tanks' and has yearly revenues upward of €200 million.
Best of all, as are their games, the event will be free to attend. All you need to do is apply for a ticket and hope for the best. We are not sure, but you might be able to buy gems, coins and diamonds once you are in though. So if you are a games developer, you need to be there. Apply quickly, as the number of tickets will be limited. The event starts on the 19th at 14:30 at Tapahtumakeskus Telakka, so hope to see you all there.
