About a month ago we wrote that our beloved sound guy, Jory Prum had been hurt in a terrible motorcycle accident.
After a month in the hospital, Jory sadly passed away on Saturday. In addition to having worked on Shadow Puppeteer he was a great friend to many of our team members, and our grief is hard to bear as we struggle to understand what has happened.
The organizers of the annual Nordic Game Conference announced their speakers for NG16 yesterday. Among the speakers are several of our good friends, like Jo-Remi Madsen and Ste Curran, but also our very own Marianne Lerdahl. She will be giving a talk based on our blog posts about “Avoiding the Tagalong trap”, – about how we worked when developing Shadow Puppeteer to ensure a strong co-op experience.
The Nordic Game Conference is one of our favourite annual events, and we look forward to coming back. If you wish to reach out to Marianne while she’s attending the conference please send her a Tweet (@Vaffeldamen). Alternatively, to se up a meeting please contact emmy[at]snowcannongames.com.
Hope to see you at NG16 May 18th – 20th, and we wish you welcome to attend Marianne’s talk.
You can find the complete list of speakers on the Nordic Game website.
It has been a very different week at the Hamar Game Collective office and for us in the Shadow Puppeteer Team. Last weekend news reached us that our brilliant and cherished sound guy, Jory Prum, had been in a terrible motorcycle accident.
