If you’ve ever wondered what exactly goes on behind the scenes when developers are creating new and interesting games, you might want to consider checking out the latest YouTube series called Devs.
The series shows us the daily lives of game developers based in Finland, a mecca for game developers. The host of the show, Christoffer Weiss, visits different cities in this Nordic country, meets up with game developers, and interviews them in their daily work environments. It’s a fascinating insight into the fun, drudgery and quirky characters of the game scene.
The whole purpose of the series is to show the viewers not only how game development really happens but also how the industry has changed in recent years and some of the challenges game developers experience on a daily basis. It’s like Cribs but for popular game titles.
Vesa Raudasoja, one of the show’s creators, has said that Devs will give us a more accurate picture of game development instead of just a “superficial glimpse”. It will also show us what makes Finland, where companies like Rovio and Fingersoft are based, an excellent country for game development.
Fingersoft is also one of the companies that will be a part of the series. Kiemura, the developer behind Piranh.io, will also be featured on Devs. The first episode, which is around 40 minutes long, is already available on YouTube. Others will be added soon but unfortunately, the creators have not revealed exactly when that might happen and how many episodes we can expect to see.
Will you watch Devs on YouTube? Let us know how you imagine the lives of game developers.
