When we formed Coffee Stain six years ago we were just a couple of good friends at University (who all still work together!). That has been one of our keys to success, but sometimes it can be good to get an external view of things.
As we’ve grown from a small indie team to a very successful studio, adding more experience to the board felt like a step in the right direction to maintain our continued success. Oskar is a great guy with huge experience in game development, building and leading teams, and we think his knowledge will be very valuable for us.
Oskar comments - "With my jaw dropped to the ground I've been watching the amazing success of Goat Simulator from the sidelines, so when I met the talented team at Coffee Stain and was asked to join the board I was very honoured - hoping to learn as much from them as I can hopefully give back. The journey of this studio has just begun, and there's tons of more fresh ideas from the team waiting to be unleashed on the gaming community!"
It’s sweet to have him on board!
