Ilari is not old, he's super young actually. But he has been running Housemarque for 22 years, quite an achievement! They pride themselves to be the oldest gaming company in Finland, as they were founded a few months before Remedy, and were pioneers in founding what is now a thriving industry of more than 2700 people. In this episode we chat about the early days of the Finnish gaming industry when there was only about 20 passionate young guys making Amiga games, about how Housemarque found its identity making incredible experiences for selected platforms and about the tough times as well (YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE TOUGH TALK!).
Hope you love it, and you forgive me for not posting for 3 months!
