Who's this guy anyway?
Hello, I'm Andreas, and I design escape room style games.
I have a strong passion for creating games that makes sense. In other words, I believe it's important for players to understand why certain puzzles exist within the context of a story. Without this understanding, players may find it challenging to stay fully engaged in the game and lose immersion.
The tradition in commercial physical and tabletop escape rooms is to incorporate brief narratives to connect the game to a broader storyline. However, these narratives often lack depth and often explains the existence of the escape room itself as an obscure security system or the creation of a mad man.
I believe in the potential for escape room style games to evolve into a narrative genre comparable to books and movies. To achieve this, we must take a cue from video games and tightly weave the story progression together with the puzzles, creating a seamless and immersive experience for players.
Since 2019 I have designed three printable tabletop games according to this core tenet.
This is how I can help you
I design story based puzzle games based on your existing audience and product line. I deliver in fully functional and playtested prototype stage, ready to be picked up by your production staff, i.e. artists and graphic designers.
I design individual escape room style puzzles for your existing game where puzzles might only be a small part of it.
This could be a video game, a table top game or even a physical escape room.
I offer professional playtesting and development for your games in pre-production or production phase.
