Member since January, 2009

With a solid background in Product Design, I have specialised as a computer game designer and developer using the Unity platform. Working on most if not all aspects of cross-platform (mobile and desktop) game programming including game mechanics, UI, AI, State machines, Pooling systems, Physics and Rigid-bodies. I have also developed various mobile optimisation techniques. Some of my latest commercial accomplishments in this field are "Ninja Guy", the cult action game that reached top 15 in the Appstore, the "Flight Unlimited" simulator series for iOS, and the artistic yet very unique "Man In A Box". In lesser specialist areas, I have written custom tools in Unity that drastically speed up production time in various ways. Some of these are actually commercially availably on the Unity Asset Store and have been well received by my peers. I am also somewhat of a talented musician, having been awarded several internet-based awards for my personal music projects. I often use these skills to create the soundtracks to the various projects I work on.

Experience

Flight Unlimited

Nov 2011

My first private project, contracted by TAS games. Flight Unlimited has been acclaimed by many to be the most visually impressive flight Simulator on the iPhone. An interesting fact about this project is that it took me just 15 work days beginning to end to complete version 1.0, which to the delight of my employer made the project both very affordable and fast to release. We are currently working on Flight Unlimited 2, features great technology and should be available by christmas 2012.
