I am Joakim and I make games!
I have a passion for story-driven games, where the mechanics complement the narrative to create an impactful and meaningful experience for the player.
One game I am particularly proud of is Split Mind, which allowed me to combine my skills in game and narrative design with a topic close to my heart, to make a positive impact in players.
I am always excited to bring my skills and passion to any new game design project.
I am currently employed at CREY Games as a Game Designer, designing and creating games and levels for the CREY platform, as well as designing Game and Level Design features for the CREY engine.
I have a Master's Degree in Visual Game and Media Design at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (KADK) as well as a Bachelor's Degree in Medialogy, giving me an interesting insight into both the artistic and the technological aspects of game development."
About me
I am a Designer of many skills, always trying to learn, improve and challenge myself.
My passion comes from creating interesting and engaging experiences and I think that games has a bigger potential for this, compared to any other media, and I need to be part of making great games! I am also passionate about storytelling, storyworlds, interaction design and visual design, which is why Level Design is the perfect match for me! It really lets me engage with all my passions, through creating visually and interactively interesting levels and environments, that not only tell a story, but are also engaging.
I live together with my wife and our lazy 12 year old grumpy chihuahua. We both love travelling and experiencing the world. A big travel goal for us is going to Japan, as we are both very interested in the country and its culture. I am even self-studying Japanese as a hobby. I also really enjoy cooking and eating foods from around the world, as I think it is a great way to experience other cultures and expand horizons.
