Inside a collection of beautifully renovated historical buildings in the city if Oulu, Finland, there is a campus dedicated to video game development. It’s called the Game Campus, and Finnish game developer Fingersoft is one of the driving forces behind it.
The intention is to rent half of the space out to startups and companies that work in video game development, creating a single space dedicated to creating and releasing high quality games. Everyone from venture capitalists to developers are welcome, ensuring all the talent and means to build a game are housed under one roof.
Campus administrator Pasi Jokinen told Business Insider:
“The end goal is not at all to just be content with having impressive premises, but to create a videogame ecosystem that would be a fertile ground for various actors in the videogame scene.”
Fingersoft already occupies the space, along with the Oulu Game Lab, and any other companies that want to move in can apply now. Renovations are likely to be completed in April, after which successful applicants can move in. The official opening day is May 1, 2017.
