The NGJ12 is happy and proud to present Indie Game Developer Petri to speak at the jam! For those that do not know Petri, besides creating the first iteration of the awesome game “Jesus vs. Dinosaurs“, at last year’s Nordic Game Jam 2011 with Martin Jonasson, here’s a little bit more about him:
Full Name: Petri Purho
Short biography: Petri Purho is best known as the creator of Crayon Physics Deluxe. He’s also known for his 7 day game prototypes, which everyone should check out. Information on these can be found on his homepage.
Petri will be presenting a lecture on “Why Being Poor and Having No Budget is Good For Making Games“. The presentation will contain a few ideas on why making games without money or budget is actually a good thing and how this can in fact spark creativity! He will be showing examples throughout the lecture and of course answer any questions.
