Antti Sten and Tuomas Erikoinen have left Rovio to be CCO and CEO of Boomlagoon. The former server manager and lead artist will build web and mobile games with HTML5.

“Through our experience of seeing multiple start ups, we’ve gained the necessary skill set for founding and running a company with high values on all departments of the company,” said Sten. “Our core skills are in game development but we’ve also had the opportunity to study fields such as PR, branding, recruitment, business negotiations, leading teams, HR, and networking.”

“We know a thing or two about successful games and high volumes and we’ll use this knowledge to spawn something very cool and new,” Sten continued. “If we play our cards right we just might end up with the next Angry Birds.”
