Back in 1987, I recieved my first Sega Megadrive for Christmas. Since then I have been a dedicated gamer on all platforms. Throughout the years, I have Dreamed of designing games, as it was my passion to deliver a one of a kind game.
My journey of starting Old Norse, began years ago in my home office. With limited resources and no training at the time. I took it upon myself to learn every possible aspect of development, from coding to asset creation. I have spent countless hours studying, creating and bringing my vision to life.
A lot of the games I have played, have some excellent aspects in them. However I believe them to be missing key elements that would make their games more appealing to hardcore gamers. I decided to start OLD NORSE to try and usher in a new era of game design.
Being a gamer first and foremost, has given me the opportunity to Listen to and discuss the games that I have played with fellow gamers. This has given me the ability to cut the bad elements out and design a game that offers the best experience to all types of gamers.
