Game on!

Adam Schaub and Marcus Jacobs have started Seider, a Stockhom-based games studio, and raised capital from A16Z Games. Video and mobile games is one of the sectors where Stockholm and the wider Nordic ecosystem have real depth from multiple large successes (King, Supercell, Unity and many others). “Standing of the shoulder of giants” is a strength of any ecosystem, and with the giants in the games space I expect many interesting gaming companies to be built in Stockholm going forward.

Games in an area where generative AI can be helpful, e.g. for things like outdoor world generation and creation of graphical assets. It might not be quite as good as AAA-work by specialists, but it can be quite close and probably take costs down 90 % over time for AA/AAA or improve the graphical quality of smaller productions. Which both are very interesting.
