Last summer, developers from around the world spent a few happy weeks living and working together in a cabin in rural Sweden.
They were taking part in an initiative called Stugan (the word means 'cabin' in Swedish) which was organized and sponsored by various local developers. A new Stugan is now planned for summer of 2016. The organizers are once again looking for participants, who have a project ongoing, and might benefit from working in a peaceful and collaborative environment for a few weeks. You can apply here.
This month also sees the launch of last year's Stugan's first game. Created by Clint Siu, it's a shape manipulation mobile game, called Prism.
"We couldn't be happier with the way last year’s Stugan played out," said Stugan manager Jana Karlikova. "We set out to provide a platform to inspire undiscovered game developers across the globe and ended up with an amazing group of teams that not only made huge strides in their projects, but in turn fueled inspiration for some of the industries top veterans across all categories who came to mentor."
