Danelaw

Foreigners... they come to our country after years of hard work and government grants and they give us their games. Well I won't stand for it, not any longer. Wait, what am I talking about?

Norwegian minister for culture and church affairs, Trond Giske, recently criticised the UK government on their lack of support for the gaming industry. He made this remark shortly after awarding grants to Scandinavian games developers:

"I view [gaming] as a cultural industry ... people develop their impressional skills, their ability to see the world in different angles and ways, and I think it's very important that we have ways of telling stories from our own culture"
