Last year was incredibly exciting for us at MiTale, with lots of new faces and cool happenings. Now, another brand new year is here and it’s time to look into the vast future. So, what’s on the horizon for MiTale in 2022?
First and foremost, we are most excited to work with our newly expanded team of game dev professionals. The year 2021 saw the arrival of many new faces to our roster and we are eager to dive into new projects with our new talents. Let’s give it our best!
As for games and projects, we have a lot of interesting stuff underway. The biggest of these is C.L.A.Y. – The Last Redemption. It’s our own narrative-driven RPG experience that we are launching on Steam come next summer. You can read more about it on its home page and we will be posting updates about it on a regular basis. We also have its artbook C.L.A.Y – The Moving City that introduces the backstory of the game coming to Kickstarter soon, so be sure to check that out too!
On the serious games side, we have a lot of things prepared for release this Spring! The first of these, Matikkapeli, is going to be released in the upcoming weeks. Matikkapeli is a food-themed math game that we have developed together with Cocomms and Ruokavirasto (The Finnish Food Authority). We will also be creating another educational game together with the same crew. In addition to that, we will be giving Sanalanka Friends new updates and releasing it globally for Android and iOS, so be sure to revisit that game as well.
Also, we will be revealing our new product/service in the upcoming weeks. This service will help you plan and do your shopping trips with ease and also get you nice benefits and rewards by using it. And of course, shopping malls and businesses will benefit from it too. Keep your eyes peeled for that one. We can’t wait to tell you more!
What’s a new year without new goals? This year we are making eLearning an even bigger focus for MiTale! To this end, we will be offering custom eLearning training for companies regardless of their industry. The last two years with telecommuting, virtual events and the sudden increase of interest in digital learning materials have taught us that there is a lot of interesting work to be done in this field. We firmly believe that interactive learning solutions that are flexible about your schedule and location can bring a lot of great things to the table. We see that adjustable learning content based on the specific needs of the individual is the future of learning and gamification, therefore we want to be the ones enabling accessible eLearning solutions.
When it comes to going places and events, it hurts to say it, but even in 2022, Coronavirus will still be with us. Thus, we can’t say that we will be participating in many live events in the upcoming year, online ones definitely! We will try to participate in whatever we can when it’s safe to do so. And that means that if there are online events for example, we’re most likely there. Also, as our CEO is the acting chair of IGDA Global, we will naturally be active with IGDA stuff this year too. This includes, for example, mentoring game industry newcomers in Discord. In case you’re interested in that, you can read more about it here.
So, that’s what we know so far about what’s going to happen in 2022 at MiTale. Of course, it’s still early to say where this new year leads us but that’s just part of the excitement. Have a good 2022 everyone!
