My Game Design Work:

I am the lead designer on Gerda: a Flame in Winter, a story-driven RPG developed by PortaPlay and published by DontNod. I designed the game's systems and narrative structure, and lead the team's work on level design and writing.

My MA thesis videogame, Archipelago, received a few design award nominations and honorable mentions as well as an arts grant. It is a casual adventure game with an innovative structure.

The Dead and the Drunk is the first content DLC for the game Broken Lines by PortaPlay. As the studio's lead designer, I helped shape the narrative, mechanics, level design and progression.

I helped design the UX and pedagogical plan and did all level design for the prototype and demo phase of the educational game Plethora, which has since been rolled out in educational institutions and played by over 200,000 students. See more on their website.

I was the Lead Game Designer on OWW, a sandbox MMO game, throughout the critical period of its Early Access launch. As of the end of my work period the game had 9/10 approval rate out of 400+ Steam reviews. I still consult the development team on a regular basis.

Motor Planet was a combat-racing online game made by Plarium.​ I was the first game designer on the team, doing a lot of high-level design. Further into the production I took the lead on narrative and content design. Overall I worked on the game for 2.5 years.

My satirical game Wolfenstache received global media coverage and more than 65,000 players. It also may have nudged the German government and Bethesda Softworks to change their policies, though we can never prove it and they will never admit it. Read more here.
