AboutAbout MeMe

Hello lovely visitor! My name is Max and I am Game Developer from Berlin, born and grew up here. I enjoy woodworking, classic movies, playing different instruments, conversations about topics like nuclear physics, and obviously games. My passion for games and especially video games sparked when I was a little boy. Back then my brother showed me all kinds of games from the SNES, and Game Boy, to the Playstation and PC. That’s when I knew that I want to build games on my own. After making some rough board games in my after-school time, I started programming my own little turn-based Arena RPG in Java, when I was 16.

I was so in love with the development of making games and seeing the happy faces when people were playing my games, that I decided to study Game Design at the BTK – University of Applied Science Europe, which I finished in February 2021. Since that and until now I am working as a Freelance Game Developer with skills ranging from Art to Design with some spices of Coding.
