It´s been the news in June that I´m joining Reboot, so here is also the website update! Super-excited to announce our partnership for the upcoming years, working on beautiful events in Croatia and also Canada!
My main focus will continue to be Ludicious and there will be still some time for freelance work and advisory, as the pro bono project European Game Showcase at GDC for example will continue. But as Ludicious is only an 60% work involvement and basically everybody came knocking on the doors after I left Aruba in summer 2017 I took the time to figure out options – and decided to partner up with one of the most passionate and driven teams, as we have been building close relationships over the recent years when I was heading the partnerships at Respawn, devcom and Quo Vadis. I´m really happy about the composition of Reboot and Ludicious, since they are complementing and supporting each other, with all stakeholders on the same page. Really excited about the future!
So here is the official news:
“TOBIAS KOPKA JOINS REBOOT DEVELOP TEAM AS KEY PARTNER
