GameDev Estonia in media

"The main goal is to bring together local game development forces, companies, entrepreneurs and ultimately universities. We would like to have a unified vision of what the Estonian game development industry is."
Ott Madis Ozolit
CEO, Placeholder Gameworks
"Our first step is to map out the Estonian game dev scene. This info at the moment is not available in a beautiful, packaged way. Then we will check what needs an improvement, for example how many young people are studying game development and getting their diploma, how many people are working in this sector. We will propose solutions to improve those statistics and showcase our plan on the governmental level."
