Dear Esther (2012)
I almost forgot. Some of my work was posted in last months update of the Chernobyl Left 4 Dead 2 mod over on moddb.
Chernobyl is a full-fledged L4D2 campaign centered around the town of Pripyat and the ChNPP complete with a lot of new custom content and a new soundtrack.
I’m working on the final map of the campaign focused on the power plant.
I know it’s not the usual stuff I post here, but if you like Left 4 Dead you should check out our moddb page to see some more of our work.
Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I’m back from my hospital trip and that I’m not dead.
All in all it was quite fun (well, relatively fun considering I was in hospital). Me any my girlfriend ordered some pizza one evening and watched The Last Unicorn. Also Moon (best movie).
I also got to play some cool games and beating the 2nd dungeon in Link’s Awakening took me about a week because I didn’t know how to kill the Shyguys. >:(
I also made a SHARECART1000 game because I had nothing better to do (I’ll post more about that later).
Apart from all that everything went well. I’m still in quite a bit of pain but that’s alright. :)
Hey peoples, another personal post just letting you know that I will be away the next couple of weeks or so because I will be having major surgery.
Now if you’ve been following this blog for a while you probably know why (btw, picture unrelated, I just tought you might like it). Otherwise don’t worry too much, I’m not going to die or anything. And hopefully everything is going to go well.
On the plus side: My hospital stay probably won’t be all that horrible (well… except for maybe the first few days after the surgery) since I’ve got Spelunky, Brother: A Tale of Two Sons and my old Gameboy Color with Link’s Awakening to keep me company (and also my lovely girlfriend is going to care for me ;) ).
And while I’m going to miss out on a lot of uni and other stuff and will proabably be in a lot of pain, I will finally have some time to work on my game projects.
If anyone gives a shit, I will let you know how it went when I get back home. <3
So every day I’ve been uploading a track from the album I released back in August (The Box Volume 1: Dark City), and currently I’ve uploaded 13 of the 15 tracks. It would MEAN A LOT if you reblogged this and spread it around, I’m really trying to get out there as a struggling artist.
Here’s the playlist if you want to keep up: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLM_ItXF6mgdrx5n2KwQ5JODRg1OkoRE5R
Here’s the single also: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnglQXtxI0E&list=PLM_ItXF6mgdrx5n2KwQ5JODRg1OkoRE5R&feature=share
I guess I’m already too late for this but I wasn’t quite sure if I should write anything but I kinda wanted to but it’s already 2014 so here we are now:
I’m not going to give you the usual bullshit 2013-retrospective-post, I think by now you’re probably already sick of that stuff.
So instead here’s a shitty comic that I drew:
Thanks for being so cool, I hope you enjoyed the last year as much as I did. It’s been a bit exhausting but also really amazing.
I met a beautiful girl. I made 4 games and released two (and have been called quite a few rude words for it). Uni started. I had my first exhibition here in Germany. I went two times on “holiday” this year (well one was a two week stay at a hospital, lol). I tattooed myself.
I finally finished Fischer.
I hope you’ll stick around for the next one.
Now finally this is the part where I should tell you what my game of the year has been but since that is a bit boring instead I’m going to give you my favorite piece of game-soundtrack from 2013. Enjoy!
I wish you a great new year ~
Photographer Gillian Laub's portraits of punk rocker Laura Jane Grace, her wife Heather, and their daughter Evelyn. These photos and the accompanying Cosmo article marked one year since Grace began her MtF transition after years of performing under the name Tom Gabel.
This family is so cute I could die. Literally the only thing that could make these three cooler would be if they balanced their rock ‘n roll lifestyle with doing some vampire hunting on the side. Moms in black, daughter in a pink tutu.
New article in response to the lates reveal by Paul Dini on why marketing execs don’t want girls in their audiences for super hero shows.
Sounds horrible right? People are shocked! Yeah, well, it’s worse then you think.
I explore the reasoning, that drive execs and marketers to pro-actively exclude women from their audiences and to pro-actively encourage a culture in which women do not feel welcome.
This is why we can’t have nice things… or can we?

I recently made a game for the 48h game jam at the Spielsalon games festival in Kassel. The topic was “Signal to noise” and the game is called Tower of Babel,a sort-of metroidvania / adventure game where the player has to climb a randomly generated tower and complete quests for glitchy creatures which you can not understand.
I did the level design and level art. And I also made a bit of music.
It won the competition and I’m really happy about it. But currently it’s not in any state to be released.
Maybe the other guys and me will finish it. I’ll keep you updated.
