Malmö Comic Con 2015

Written by Joel Konttinen


“The six Nordic #madewithunity titles chosen by Unity and Nordic Game represent some of the best new projects from the region, and the 15,000 expected Comic Con visitors will get the chance to try-out the games for themselves at the show.”

..Alright, Gunnheim was one of those six. We were stoked to hear that we had the opportunity to get back to Malmö to show how the game had evolved and let the visitors of Comic Con to give it a shot. The last Sieidi’s trip to Malmö was quite heavy for us, so we were also a bit scared how this would turn out. So Petri and me were sent to the Sweden to do the honors.

We arrived to the Copenhagen at Saturday morning after a rough trip from Jyvaskyla to Helsinki in the middle of the night. Without sleep – at all. From Copenhagen we took a train to Malmö and for our convinience the avenue and our hotel were fairly close to the station we arrived to.

It was time to set up the booth. Since we are indies, we have to be flexible and even more creative when it comes to the marketing efforts with budget of zero euros. So this is what we came up with;


The booth was a great success. We had lot of people coming up to first laugh to our marketing strategy and then testing out the game. Some even for almost an hour – At this point we knew that we are on the right track with the development.

The venue was filled with incredible cosplays and people seemed to enjoy their time in the Comic Con – So did we.


Overall the trip was a success! We got lot of awesome feedback on our way to the final release of Gunnheim. Huge thank you for our publisher Meridian4 for making the trip possible for us!
