- quote from the 2021 edition of Game Developer Index

"Some media have called computer games “the new base industry” and this may be a good fit for an industry that had a turnover of EUR 3.3 billion in 2020."

In Karlstad, everything is a 10-minute bike ride away meaning I get to spend more time with my family and to do stuff I enjoy, like playing music or games instead of commuting. No more metro or time spent in car queues.

I heard people in Stockholm spend on average more time commuting than being on vacation per year, which is crazy when you think about it.
