As further initiatives look to solidify the Nordic games industry, EA’s SimCity enjoys mixed fortunes in the region’s games charts.
Here’s a roundup of the biggest news this week on MCVuk.com’s sister site MCV Pacific:
- Neogames Finland and the Digital Games Research Association DiGRA are looking for Finnish theses for the first annual Game Studies Thesis Competition.
- Submissions are now being taken for the Live pitching session at the Nordic Game Conference in Malmö, Sweden, which takes place on Thursday May 23rd.
- SimCity has recovered from a weak start in Sweden to ascend to the top of the country’s game charts.
- Norway has seemingly differentiated itself from its Scandinavian cousins by relegating EA’s Sim City to just No.9 in the country’s game charts. The fallout of the game’s “always-on internet” furore?
