I did interview Oscar Clark, who didnt want to tell me his age! In a way he did.
The whole interview you can listen here. It was a magical an hour. I just couldnt stop him and that is the format! Get industry people to talk, explain, share their vision, war stories, the do’s & don’t’s and more.
So some topics that we touched;
- Who is Oscar and what is he doing?
- He is mentioning a new company, but cannot reveal yet the details, but something he is!
- Which events should we attend?
- Why did Finland take a leading role?
- How is Oscar looking at the user acquisition battle out there?
- What advise can he give to young people that want to get started in games?
- and more!
Some background of Oscar? Sure!
