John Romero, one of the original developers of Doom, is heading to Kajaani in Finland to speak at the Northern Game Summit in October.

The Northern Game Summit (NGS) is a game conference and an annual networking event for the game development trade and associated industries. The event is held in the middle of Finland’s woodland, in the city of Kajaani on October 5th and 6th 2017. Kajaani is located 550 kilometres north from the capital of Finland, Helsinki.

The NGS's 500+ attendees can engage each other in an  easy-going and intimate environment across three parts of the event – The Business Mixer, Bonus Stage Party, and the NGS 2017 itself. The event has six different tracks: Design, Production, Art, Audio, Business and Tech.

Speakers from all around the world have enlisted for NGS: John Romero from the US (Industry veteran), Adam Harrington from the US (voice actor, famous from Tales from Monkey Island and Wolf Among Us), Patrick Rose from Germany (Business and Product Analyst at Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe), Eevi Korhonen from Finland (Game Designer at Remedy Entertainment) and Timo Heinäpurola from Finland (Senior Engineer at Reforged Studios).

This year’s panel discussion is about game psychology and how does games and gaming have an influence on the human mind. 

The Business Mixer is a pre-party of the Northern Game Summit. Game developers and others can mix’n’match there on October 4th before the conference. The Bonus Stage Party is an official after-party of the Northern Game Summit. It will have great people, Marioke, food, open bar and a small number of exhibitors. The party will be arranged in the evening of October 5th.

NGS main sponsors this year are Critical Force, Fingersoft and Supercell.
