Developer Biography

Marcus Andrews is a young Swedish game designer who is part of and has greatly contributed to the new educated generation of game designers.

During his years at university he searched for the theory and semantics behind great game design. Although not entirely unsuccessful he reluctantly had to confess that experience is just as important that everyone says.

As stated in his thesis... "Game design theories and systems can alongside with knowledge of HCI, dramaturgy, programming, math, and other academic subjects greatly enhance a designers potential and toolset, but is still only likely to add a piece of the puzzle that is game design"
