Description

In order to make video games we had to setup a company. This is the presskit for that company.

About Nolla Games

Nolla Games is a company that was setup by 3 indie developers, all of whom have worked on their own projects in the past. In fact over the years the gentlemen in question have worked on over 150 titles. Though the quality of the released titles varies from IGF Seumas McNally Grand Prize winning games to ... well ... Notepad: The Game. The three gents in question are:

Petri Purho

Petri is best known as the creator of Crayon Physics Deluxe. In his youth he also made a lot tiny freeware games. He has also made a bunch of board games, but he hasn't told about it to anyone. So please keep it a secret.

Olli Harjola

Olli released his first commercial game The Swapper in 2013. Besides indie games, he also dabbles in music, live visuals and making programming languages.

Arvi Teikari

Arvi is also known as Hempuli. Over the years he has released a lot of tiny experimental games, so many in fact that he is unaware of all of them. One of the games he remembers making is Environmental Station Alpha.


The irony is that Nolla Games developers have released a ton of games, but Nolla Games itself is yet to even announce the first one. Sources close to Nolla Games speak of a big announcement coming soon.

History

Early history

Our little studio, if you wanna call it that, we like to call it a place of permanent stink, because no one wants to take the trash out, was founded on the last day of optimism: November 7th 2016. Really it started a lot earlier, but setting up a company is a lot like taking the trash out: nobody wants to do it. Speaking of permanent stink and trash have you seen the current state of indie games? There are so many indie games being released these days that in order to have a competitive edge over the other games we've opted not to take the trash out and use that time to work on our game instead. In fact I should probably be working our game instead of writing these descriptions that no one will ever read.

After that

No one has taken the trash out yet. Maybe we'll do it after the release of our game. I doubt it though, since I'm sure we'll have to work day and night on updates. And I'm sure we'll get all kinds of hate mail if someone on the internet finds out that we've taken the trash out instead of working on the game. Maybe if the game sells well enough we could hire a web developer, since they're used to working with trash.
