Pelaaja's January Issue Celebrates Sam Lake's Career

To kick off the year, Pelaaja has announced their special January 2023 magazine issue with an in-depth profile of a rather familiar face.

Janne Pyykkönen recently sat down with Sami Järvi aka Sam Lake (Creative Director at Remedy) for an extensive interview, exploring the writer's youth, inspirations, and what it's like to work at the studio. The article is accompanied by photography by Lasse Erkola, taken at the studio's in-house motion capture area.

Readers can also look forward to reading Pelaaja's top games of 2022, including The Callisto Protocol, Marvel's Midnight Suns, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion and more.

As it's a local magazine, the interview and article is written in Finnish and available in stores across the country. If you're in Finland, you can pick up your copy at local stores for 12,90€, or order directly from Pelajaa, HERE. The issue is available as a digital edition too for 4,90€.
