First I would just like to apologize for the site being down/ under construction for so long. I’ve had a very busy year (which I will tell you all about) and fixing up my website just became one of those things I postponed over and over and over. I finally managed to steal a few moments though – et voila! Here I am.
So… what’s been going on? I’m glad you asked!
As planned – I managed to get married and finish my MA last year, so here you have a photo of me, looking all smart’n fancy.
After…. well before actually. It should have gone finish MA – get married – start company, but in stead it went start company – get married – finish MA. Which, truth be told, turned that whole period into a stressful, but beautiful mess of events. Anyway, what I’m getting at is that I started a game dev company along with 10 other fantastic people. The company is called Henchman & Goon, and we are currently half way through production of our first game, Flem. If you’re interested in finding out more about the game and/or company, head over to our website http://henchmangoon.com/

I then spent the spring travelling around to conferences. I did Animex, which was wonderful as usual, as well as a bunch of smaller 1-2-day con’s here in Norway, but the highlight was definitely that I got the opportunity to go to GDC San Francisco. I was granted a scholarship from the IGDA which gave me a full access pass, and access to a bunch of amazing pre-planned stuff along with the other scholars. We got to visit Three Rings and Double Fine, and met some awesome people. I sincerely hope I’ll be able to go again next year.
After getting back home, all over stimulated and inspired, I was given the responsibility of inviting speakers to a local games conference called Konsoll, as well as asked to be MC for the whole thing. Which was both an honor and a bit scary. And this is where I’m ending this post. Konsoll just ended, and I’ve decided it deserves it’s own post in order to get room for all the awesomeness.
