I studied game design at FutureGames which is the leading games education in Sweden. By direct collaboration with representatives in the games industry the school provides an education that is designed to fit the industry´s demands and requirements.

Focus on programming.

Projects and experience

Unlit VR as Lead game designer/Level Design - Group project , a singleplayer horror wave shooter in VR made in Unreal Engine using Oculus rift.
As lead design I took the major decisions regarding gameplay, mechanics and level design working together with the team to realize and unify the vision we had formed together.
I also did blueprint programming on various props and the initial blockout and design for the level with the mechanics and concept in mind.

 
Apex as Producer/Game designer - Group project , a singleplayer build-your-own-level runner made in Unity.
As a producer I worked together with the team to deliver the things we needed in time to create the game we envisioned in pre-production, while also assisting lead designer with mechanics, balancing and gameplay concepts.


Dice Race as Game designer - Group project. A push-your-luck dice board game combined with a board mechanics and cards.
I did the initial design of the base concept of the game mechanics such as dice rolls, playable board and card concepts which I then iterated on and balanced from playtesting.

 
Skull Islands as Level designer - Solo project. A level for the game Adventure on Clover Island made 2 weeks in Unreal Engine.
Working with existing assets I created a level based on a tropical island paradise corrupted by machines, aiming to use the machinery to provide a contrast to the tranquil and cozy beach.
I wanted to create a level inspired by realism but also playability for both beginners and experienced players and focusing on using timing as the key theme.


Jailhouse Rock as Level designer - Solo project . A level for the game Left 4 Dead 2 made in Hammer SDK.
In this level, I wanted the player to have flow and tempo while being in both cramped and open environments, working with a mood board of real prisons to create an interesting setting that makes the player want to explore and look around.
Inspired by The walking dead’s prison season.

 
CTF Sanctum as Level Designer - Solo project , a level for Unreal Tournament for a workshop with Sjoerd de Jong, made in 2 weeks using Unreal Engine.
Working with BSP brushes to quickly block out and iterate the base concept of a level that is split in two in the middle, creating an area of conflict where team play is critical while also providing solo players a chance to show off their skills.


QA Paradox, Avalanche, DICE, Srvive - QA industry work on the now released DLC Natural disasters, playtesting to find and report bugs using JIRA and balancing issues during the course of 2 weeks, working together with members of an internal QA team at Paradox.
Focus testing and/or QA assistance at DICE, Avalanche, Svrvive, Right Nice Games, Toadman Interactive.

 
Meowstronaut as Game Designer - Group project, a singleplayer sidescrolling platformer made in Unreal Engine.
