I'm not sure whether I'm on the right board or not but I just wanted to throw this out there.

Would anyone in the Stockholm region (or Sweden in general) be interested in starting some sort of game collective. Kind of like http://www.handeyesociety.com
or
http://www.copenhagengamecollective.org/ ?

Because I'm very interested in finding people to collaborate with and I don't know that many people who actively create games.

My ideal vision for this would be to get lots of creative people together, not just experienced gamemakers and programmers but also musicians and artists who want to actively take part in the actual design of a game.

It would be fun to have different kinds of events and just promote a creative environment for people to work together and share their work.

DISCLAIMER: I haven't started putting anything together at all I just want to see if there's anyone else out there who've thought about this as well. We can talk Wink!

EDIT:

We've got a forum up at

GO JOIN!


FIRST MEETUP: THURSDAY APRIL 15!!!

Was fun times.

Indeed we do, I mean The Hand Eye Society? Come'on, how sweet is that!

I'm glad others are interested, tell your friends!

I bet we're a lot more from around here than we think (or at least I thought). Could turn into something. At the very least we should drink together sometime! Wink

Do you have any creative friends you think would like to participate in making games? I think that including people who don't have the same interests plus experiences could really help the overall creativity in creations. It would be very enjoyable as well!

Alright, well what a coincidence. Smiley

You should tell Erik to bring you along to the next Berghs Bar.

Technically I'm a homeless drifter, and am currently living in Miami, FL USA, but I hail from Chicago, IL USA and Krakow, Poland and have a dual-citizenship so I can pretty much go anywhere an American or EU-citizen can go.

Okay, that's cool. But you're thinking of moving to Stockholm? If so, how so? Smiley

As someone who had the same idea in another part of the world, it's a very good Idea!

We should get the ball rolling on this. Christoffer, are you planning on creating a forum or something for our sexual Swedish needs?

I could start one of those not so fancy prebuilt forums but I'm no php-wizard. What would you suggest we do?

I mean we could just start a mailing list but getting people talking with eachother might be key to getting this whole thing together.

Anyone else have any suggestions what would be most effective?

I think a forum would work well (even though a half-empty forum is quite depressing), check out http://www.forumer.com/, looks like a good free service.

We should have a game-making contest leading up to a IRL meetup/showdown with alcohol and gaming Beer!.

You'll just have to come visit then! Wink

I'll set up a forum this afternoon I've just got to complete my school assignment.

I'll probably just call it Swedish Game Collective for now if none of you have any better suggestions?
