Even though I´m not Finnish (I´m of Swedish/Danish origin). I have always had my eyes on the Gaming scene in Finland (I got interested in Finland when the esport scene took off in Scandinavia thanks to ID Software´s release of “Quake 2“), even so, my big love for Finnish games started with Remedy Entertainment´s “Max Payne 1”. And I´ve been really into Finnish games ever since then. So I got quite excited when I found out that a group of Finnish Gamers, hackers and computer hobbyists had started an indiegogo campaign to produce an English international edition, of their computer culture magazine “Skrolli” (it´s a non-commercial magazine).

That´s great news of course. Well, at least if you love computer culture. Anyhow, there is a down side to all of this though. Because Skrolli needs to collect $15,000 via indiegogo in order to become an international magazine that´s written in English. And the Skrolli team has a little bit over a month’s time on them to become fully founded on indiegogo (the campaign ends on the 18th of February). So I wish the Skrolli team the best of luck with their indiegogo campaign!

About Skrolli:
We are a group of hackers, computer hobbyists, gaming enthusiasts and journalists from Finland. We grew up reading about computers, programming, games and computer culture in magazines. They taught many of us how to do things ourselves instead of only consuming ready-made products. They raised the generation that gave birth to innovations like IRC and Linux and companies like Supercell, Remedy and Housemarque. One by one, these hacker magazines disappeared from the mainstream and died off – in Finland and everywhere else. We felt sorry that they were gone.

The Internet is great, of course, but it will never be permanent like print is. Articles on websites tend to disappear, but we can still read magazines from a hundred years ago. Three years ago, we decided to make a magazine ourselves. We were fascinated with the idea of making something that we used to love, but writing about the topics of the present day. It turned out that this was a good idea, since a lot of people wanted to join us in making such a magazine. Skrolli and its community were born, and a total of 12 issues have been published since then. The time has come to present Skrolli to an international audience. If this crowdfunding campaign succeeds, we can print an issue in English. If there is enough interest, we can even start publishing Skrolli in two languages.
