Paul van Eekelen started modding games at the age of fifteen. He created mods for Age of Empires II and Worms World Party, but spend most time creating a six level single player campaign for Star Wars: Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II and its expansion pack . The campaign (A Pirate’s Tale) was well received by the (by then still thriving) Jedi Knight editing community. After its completion Paul worked on another single-player level (The Darkest Thing) together with community member Petri Sepanmaki. The last thing Paul contributed to the Jedi Knight community was a multiplayer level inspired by the board game Master Labyrinth.
During this time Paul enrolled in the Utrecht School of Arts. Here he studied Game Design and Development. For four years Paul worked on various school projects, producing small games. Paul often took the role of designer or programmer.
During his internship he was part of the design team at Larian Studios working on the RPG game Divinity II: Ego Draconis. Paul graduated as a European Media Master of Arts in Game Design in September 2009.
Since graduation Paul has been working at Vanguard Games on unannounced projects as a game designer.
