- In the middle of the pandemic, I switched positions and started working as Nordic Marketing Manager for Bethesda, based at the Mi5 Communications office. What a thrilling experience to be part of the talented Bethesda team and working with partners on marketing campaigns for AAA releases such as Deathloop, the most anticipated, exclusive PlayStation 5 title of the year!
- During a super busy spring period, our team is on a roll as we released a DLC for Rico as well as Thunderful Publishing launching the very popular Lonely Mountain’s Downhill on Switch! We also annouced Deadly Premonition 2 and Harvest Moon: One World as Rising Star Games.
- In February, the team attended PAX East in Boston with our partners Retriod – just before the world as we know if changed.
Ready for some major Swenglish and saying "hi" to the gang? This is what happens shortly before show close and your girl is dead tired 😅 OBS: Göteborska-varning hehe
Wishing everyone a great Friday night! 😁💋#PAXEast2020 #MsGamerPAX 😉 pic.twitter.com/pNFtMNfx5O
