Niklas Strid

Biography edit · view history

His career in the gaming industry started in October 2010, when he joined Paradox Development Studio. His first task was taking over scripting chores for the second half of the development of Divine Wind, the fourth expansion for Europa Universalis III. As a scripter and researcher he next worked on the game Sengoku before taking over those duties for the second half of Crusader Kings II, especially focusing on the game's plot mechanics.

Early in 2012 he joined the development team for Europa Universalis IV as Lead Scripter, and was at the same time promoted to Senior Scripter for the studio. In February 2014 Niklas left the task of scripter attached to a specific game to instead combine his duties as Senior Scripter with that of Usermod Coordinator - a newly created role at the studio intended to support modders full time and continue to develop the internal scripting language.

Niklas holds two degrees in Screenwriting from Vancouver Film School (2005) and Högskolan på Gotland (2008), as well as a degree in Game Design from Futuregames Academy (2010).
