18:15-19:00: Ole Andreas Jordet (Krillbite) - Krillbite, Unity & Kickstarter
Krillbite Studio have existed for only 2 short years. During the development of our bigger upcoming title, Among the Sleep, we have managed to acquire some knowledge regarding being a indie game start-up in Norway, using Unity for bigger game titles and preparing a Kickstarter campaign. These are the main topics I'll talk about.
Ole Andreas is the producer at Krillbite Studio, but also functions as a programmer on this small team of 11 people. With his tech background in server virtualization and technical support he very much enjoys his current position as it involves both technical aspect as well as interacting with fellow humans.
