At last it is here!
Kalevala: The Capture of Sampo board game prototype has arrived from the print house, and will be shown at the Spiel Essen in Germany!
Tuomas Mansikka had a game he'd been working with for some time and contacted me to help him put the cherry on top. We worked for over two months and had several hours long video chats until last week's Monday the prototype was sent for printing.
The game consists of:
A divider screen to be put between players.
A map to be hung on both sides of the divider screen (similar to Battleship game).
20-page Rule book.
Player aids in two different sizes.
160 different cards with five different backs!
Sampo & Wound tokens and Wind Compass out of cardboard.
Also several beautiful paintings from Akseli Gallen-Kallela (link), Dana Mad (link) and game-icons (link).
Logo, tokens, wreath and map illustrations by me.
The first prototype was printed with my home office ink jet and cut by hand. It was then tested at the local board game café Taverna.
Want to be part of making this game? Mr Mansikka is looking for investors and interested players to try the game out and develop it further. Contact Tuomas Mansikka on his email here.
Ukkoverkot organized a Smart Ratina demo day on September 1st at Raatihuone in Tampere.
The event showcased pioneer company solutions in the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) for mass events such as concerts and sport venues to be held at Ratina stadion in Tampere.
Visitors included CEOs, investors, athletics and people from various businesses. Companies such as Intopalo, Accenture, Notava, Eatech, Affecto, IBM, Nokia, Huawei, First Beat, Eligo Studio and Virtual Dawn held presentations of their newest solutions on their stands throughout the course of the event.
Service design agency Hellon helped out with the event, and every participant were encouraged to take a short survey from each of the demos.
The photo above depicts the event very well: people finding new innovations through companies: sharing, discussing, and trying out ideas and solutions!
I designed the visual identity for this event, as requested by Antti Vuorio from Ukkoverkot. The style was to be kept simple and professional, and fit with the existing SmartTampere look.
The event required A5 folded flyers and name tags for all the facilitarors as well as visitors. Additionally, voting boxes were labeled and a huge A0 poster was hung in the hallway with the same information found in the flyer.
