Julie is an active game jammer, one of the organizers of Nordic Game Jam and is currently working on the Norse mythology based game, XTODIE. True viking style! Julie has founded Unicorn7 together with a group of game jammers from the Copenhagen based jamming community. Unicorn7, a web platform for game jam games, is used at Nordic Game Jam, Exile Game Jam, No More Sweden and more. Julie is also involved in Burning Bridges, Indie MEGABOOTH and the Amaze Festival.
Dana takes care of everything that relates to developer PR and email marketing campaigns and also helps Julie out with organizing events. She has around 7 years worth of experience in PR/Communications, both in the indie scene and in the big industry, having worked for blue chip companies and governmental agencies.
Dana is in charge of the Bandello LaunchPad and have done PR for 30+ games. Running the LaunchPad has provided her with insight in PR needs both on the devs and the journalists side. This knowledge has spurred HypeSlugs, a new PR tool for game devs to publish a professional, no-nonsense, awesome-looking profile of their game and distribute it to game journalists. The website is still in the making, but it will be launching shortly. In the mean time, get the early slug discount by checking out the website ;)
