How CCP Are Inspired By Iceland

A man being inspired by Iceland LIVE!

Monday mornings are for posting nine-month-old videos that most people haven’t seen before but for which one person will loudly point out that he knew about it aaaaaages ago. This time it’s a fantastic interview with a few members of the team at CCP, talking about how Eve Online is inspired by Iceland – the country in which the company began. The similarities drawn between Iceland’s extraordinary and dangerous scenery, and Eve’s stretches of space, are very interesting. It left me wondering how many other developers can speak so eloquently about their geographical inspirations, and determined to find out the next time I interview anyone. This is part of a series of videos created by the Icelandic tourist board – Inspired By Iceland – to promote their phenomenally expensive/beautiful country to the rest of the jealous world. A campaign which also includes excellent dancing, so that’s below too.

Also Icelandic accents are best. Here’s someone singing in one, while people dance. I cannot connect this to videogames. (Be warned, it does contain a slightly nude lady and man):
