Mario Wynands - Industry Talk

01-Apr-2011 AIE Melbourne was lucky enough to have Mario Wynands, Managing Director and co-founder of Sidhe Interactive, come in to talk about the good, the bad and the ugly of his 14 years at Sidhe. Sidhe Interactive is New Zealand's largest game development studio. As the Managing Director of Sidhe, Mario oversaw the creation of successful games like Shatter, GripShift, and Speed Racer.
 
Mario had a lot to talk about having run studio operations, managed numerous games and witnessed radical changes in the technology, conventions and interfaces of games. Mario talked about Sidhe’s PikPok label, which has recently released numerous hits on iOS and Android handheld devices.

In addition to running Sidhe interactive, Mario is the president of the New Zealand Game Developers Association (NZGDA), acting as an industry advocate and assisting and mentoring other developers.
