Life at Zoink – ZoinkDay #22

Hey Zoinklings!

I think I owe you an apology. We’ve actually missed two ZoinkDays on the blog! Thing is, we do have two really awesome things to tell you, but for this and that reason we haven’t been able to go live with them just yet.

But here’s the good news! One of these awesome things will be revealed this Monday! So bare with us, okay? And make sure to check out the blog when next week kicks of. Believe me, you don’t want to miss this.

Until then, I’d like to give you a little look at what a regular day at Zoink looks like. Being new at Zoink myself, I recently didn’t have a clue about how games were made, even though I’ve played them all my life. So I’m guessing some of you people find this stuff really interesting as well!

I still get really excited watching the game come to life. It’s such a cool process! Some of us don’t work with the game in the same way that’s shown in the video though. Myself, I spend my days chatting with you guys, looking for cool people to collaborate with and planning fun events and contests.

And then there’s Joel – our music guy! He’s got his own little soundproof room where he can go loose on his instruments. He’s actually making the last edits on the Zombie Vikings soundtrack this very day. I snuck into his lair and asked him to freestyle a bit on his most modern and high-quality keyboard (bought at a thrift shop for the same price as two IKEA towels).

One more thing! We hosted a video Q&A on Twitter last week, giving you the chance to ask anything you wanted about what we do, how we work and whatever silly things you could come up to. I’ve mashed almost all of our answers into this little video, so take a look if you wanna know more about us!

And hey, if you have any more questions, or suggestions about what you would like to see on the blog – let me know!

See ya laterz,
