Winner Rising Star of the Year at Spillprisen 2015

Nominee Best Story at Spillprisen 2015

Lead Game Developer on Enki, a unique educational online game running on web browsers. It features avatar costumisation, crafting, and a leveling up system, and it's tailored for use in both classrooms and privately at home. The teacher has his or her own dashboard that interacts with the game, in which the teacher can communicate with and follow his or her pupils' progress.

I implemented the game client on top of ImpactJS, customising it for our needs. As an example, I integrated PixiJS with ImpactJS to achieve WebGL rendering, and I worked on making the game playable and ejoyable on all major modern web browsers for desktop and mobile devices.

In addition to game programming, I collaborated with the Art Director on all GUI and interaction designs, developed educational content, wrote dialogues and side stories, worked on level design, and collaborated on designing the crafting system.

Rowboat Simulator


Software Engineer for Oslo Fjord Museum, developing software for an interactive rowboat experience. In order to accomplish what we wanted, I had to learn about codecs, and synchronize several video files to imitate a higher resolution video. The video speeds up or down depending on your rowing abilities, and the rowboat plays random water splash sounds when you pull the oars. I also implemented a menu where you select the scene to row by pulling the oars.
