Sea of Solitude

Sea of Solitude Review now online

My review for Sea of Solitude just got published! I was really excited to play the game. Not only because it is developed by a Berlin based studio, but also because the style really resonated with me since the first time I saw the game. It is a very short, yet really emotional experience. If you’re a fan of games like Journey or Abzû you should definitely check out Sea […]

The Sinking City

The Sinking City Review now online

I’m always really excited when I hear an announcement about games that play (or are inspired by) the Lovecraft universe, so I was excited to play The Sinking City as soon as it was announced. Unfortunately it wasn’t the kind of experience I was hoping for in a Lovecraftian RPG. If you’re interested in my personal pro’s and con’s of the game, take a look at my Gamereactor review! Read the […]

A Plague Tale

A Plague Tale: Innocence Review now online

My review for Asobo Studio’s A Plague Tale: Innocence got published yesterday on the german Gamereactor site. It is pretty rare to see game mechanics that work so perfectly together with the rest of the game, the developers did an amazing job creating the rat crowding system and using that throughout the whole game.  Definitely recommended to check out if you are a fan of games like Dishonored, or immersive […]

What I’ve been up to

I have been pretty quiet in the last couple of months after announcing the start of my internship at Mad About Pandas.

Wednesday Weekly Featurette, a series where influential women from the games and tech industry are being highlighted every week. I’ve written several reviews for Gamereactor such as Genesis: Alpha One, Metro Exodus (which I really enjoyed), The Occupation, as well as Trüberbrook. […]

Hey! this is just a quick post to let you know that my review for Cyanide Studios’ Call of Cthulhu is now online at Gamereactor Germany.

Mad About Pandas Internship

Game Design Internship at Mad About Pandas

Two weeks ago I’ve started my internship at Mad About Pandas, a small studio here in Berlin. I am part of the team working on Hitchhiker, a mystery game inspired by titles like Firewatch or Gone Home with a kind of Twin Peaks vibe. If you want to know more about my role in the team and the game in general you can take a look at the page I’ve created in the game […]

Open House Exhibition UE

Open House Exhibition @ UE

Almost two weeks ago we’ve had our exhibition and open house at the university, where everyone was invited to look at our current works. One of my games I worked on, Tesseract, was included in the „Süper Mega Game Pack“ (the GOTY of university works). Our professors also gave us the chance to design our own sticker pack and postcards as a support for the game, which was super exciting. […]
