Here’s some pics from my life.
Here’s some pics from my life.
This week me and my boss Ola went to the “Meet & Greet” event with aspiring game developers studying computer game development, at The Game Assembly school. As a final course of the school the students complete a 7 months internship on a game company.
We were hoping to spread the word about our company and get some 3D artist and programmers as interns. It was a pleasant surprise that so many of the students remembered the metrics focused lecture I gave at Swedish Game Awards: South conference, a couple of weeks ago.Even some of the other professional game developers attenting the “M&G” came up to say “hi” and wanted to talk about the lecture.
This year the competition for skilled interns was fierce, companies like DICE, Easy, Massive, IO and other big fishes also wanted to get hold of some fresh students.
After meeting with the students we all headed for the pub and some beers. I spent my night mostly talking to an old friend who now is the studio manager at Paradox South. Anyways, I already got some CV:s in my in-box from the students, let’s hope we are able to offer some internships for them after the summer!
Once you’ve had enough
Don’t forget to love
‘Fore you’re gone
Had a super after work yesterday. We went to a small pub near the office, took a few beers and shared stories. It was nice to see everyone again after the Easter vacations! Here’s some pictures from this week at the office!
Went to Finland this Easter. In other words I went Home. With a big “H”.
Sometimes I forget I actually moved abroad 4,5 years ago to study and work. Sweden and Finland are kinda the same, except for some fun cultural stuff and the language.
Anyways, until I got my my pictures from the Easter vacation in Finland, here’s some photos from last time I went Home. The pictures are taken by my dear friend Julia. Click here to visit her blog. She is drawing all her blog pictures using paint!
Right now I’m researching options for eye operations. I have had glasses for about 12 years, and I think it’s finally time to get rid of them. It’s always such a hassle dealing with contacts when I go swiming, diving or when I want to put on some make-up. My eyelashes are so long I can’t use mascara and glasses at the same time, they scratch my glasses and leave black marks.
This is a big thing for me, if something goes wrong I might end up blind. Chances are extremely low, and honestly I’m a bit concerned about having a laser cutting in my eyes. I’ve saved enough money to do this, and in the long run this will be less expensive than buying new glasses and contacts all the time.
Things that makes me happy:
True friends makes you proud of yourself, and at the same time humble for letting them spend time with someone as awesome as them! I love my friends so much. They bring adventures, comfort and challenges. No words can describe how happy I am to be a part of their lives < 3 It’s good to be back in my home town and see all the girls again!
It’s always a bit wierd to be back where it all started, in my hometown. You see the place where you went to school, you meet ppl in the night club you should recognize, but everyone got a bit older since the last time. Someone you knew back in elementary school just got kids. It’s cool to back in this small town where nature is just around the corner, and the ocean surrounds you.
This week I joined the Tuff Tanks project at work. Tuff Tanks is our newest game, to be published for iPad, if you want to see the trailer, click here. This means I’m now involved in two games. Exciting but challenging at the same time! We are making Tuff Tanks together with Aeria Games, and the game will launch this spring.
Anyways, here’s some selected photos of what’s been going on at work for the past two weeks!
Easter is closing in. I’m going to Finland in order to meet with my family, which is nice. I wish it didn’t take me 12 hours to travel from Malmö to Finland…Last time I went home was this fall, about 5 months ago. That’s not OK. Family and friends are what matters the most in my life, I should be better at prioritizing them. Last time I went home I held a lecture at my old school about what’s it like to study game development. Hopefully I inspired someone to take the chance!
Here’s some pictures from my phone, from the last 2 weeks. I went to Swedish Game Awards: South in order to hold a lecture about metrics and how metrics guided game design can help the game designers when making a game more fun. Fun stuff to meet with some other game developers and game students! It was cool meeting the guy who wrote the story for “Amensia”. That game is super scary! I was really amazed when he told the audience they are 8 developers working on the company (Frictional Games), and they meet by Skype o_o
