Everywear Games, a new Helsinki-based gaming studio, has been recently formed that’s set to focus entirely on developing for the leading wearable smartwatch devices. The team was formed by a variety of veteran developers from companies including Remedy, Digital Chocolate and Rovio. Everywear Games is also supported by some of the top gaming investors in the world. Petteri Koponen, partner at Lifeline Ventures, is the Chairman of the Board. Nikolaj Nyholm, partner at Sunstone Capital, has also joined the board of directors.
“It’s energizing to do something that has never been done before. The potential for natively developed games on wearables is limitless,” said Mika Tammenkoski, CTO and co-founder of Everywear Games. “We’re striving to perfect the wearable gameplay experience.”
“We see wearable tech as the most exciting new platform of 2015,” said Aki Järvilehto, CEO and co-founder of Everywear Games. “As developers, this year presents an unrivalled opportunity to craft completely original gaming experiences for a global audience.”
As of now, we were informed that more details on games from Everywear Games will be revealed later this year or sometime next year. We’re hoping more information will be available sometime soon this year with the Apple Watch coming out next month, but we’ll see.
