Together with my friends and peers from the games industry, we try to make our world a little more positive every day. Here are some of my public appearances and game design related talks:

The base for my Half-Life: Alyx mystery mod The Whispers In Between was chosen to be displayed on the Berlin Mercedes Square in February 2021. Such a surreal experience and a great honor. The project accompanies my thesis forging a new narrative game design term called Environmental Foreshadowing.

Speaking at the Gamefest about Gemrock
Talk Gemrock on Stage
Same stage, different angle

My team and I had the amazing opportunity to talk about Gemrock‘s design on stage at gamesweekberlin’s Gamefest 2019. Shout-out to Michael Liebe who tirelessly pushes the games industry forward with a smile on his face. Thank you, Gamefest!

The Industry Idiots Game Design Podcast is a show I host together with my best friend and talented game designer Sven-David Gießelmann. It started out as a one-hour long industry positive design hangout among friends (which includes our amazing guests!), and now, 3500+ listeners and 34+ episodes later it’s still a one-hour long industry positive design hangout among friends, but with video! Sven does most of the promo artwork and creative photoshops, while I moderate, prepare the guest episodes, and handle audio and video editing. Marketing and business are done by both of us.
