Sam Lake Joins Aalto University's Games Now! Event
[February 20th at 10am EET, Rewatch Now]

Tomorrow, Sam Lake (Creative Director at Remedy) will be visiting Aalto University to take part in a special fireside chat centred around Alan Wake 2.

If you can't join in person, you can grab some popcorn and join virtually via the university's Twitch channel. Make sure to set a reminder as Sam is set to take to the stage tomorrow (February 20th) at 10am EET (8am GMT). 

The open lecture is part of Aalto University's Games Now! event, taking place between February 19th and 25th 2024, which explores the video game scene and the latest trends.

For the week-long event, they collaborate with local studios and veteran game developers to explore the work that they do and to hear about their experiences. The lectures are also free for anyone to watch; you don't need to be enrolled to enjoy them.

Alongside the lectures, Games Now! also features game jam, podcasts, archived lectures, and a whole lot more. It's a fantastic resource for those looking to break into the industry or looking at Helsinki to study.
