A great autumn

I guess this is autumn. More and more leaves are fading, it’s getting colder and the nights are no longer bright (Scandinavian summer nights are fantastic). Normally I hate autumn, but I cant help liking this one. It’s not because of the summer’s death (yes, dramatic language – that’s how much I normally hate autumns), but because of the work I’m doing.

To begin with I’m writing system design for an exciting new (undisclosed) game at a cool new startup studio. In addition to this I’m lecturing about game design at a university, to students on their third year towards a bachelor of “experience production and interactive media”. Both jobs are a lot of fun. They’re intellectually stimulating, and both focusing on a topic I’m passionate about – game design.

I love doing design work in general, but it’s even better when it’s for a game I’d love to play myself. The title I’m working on now excites me both as a designer and as a player.

Now, I must admit I really had no idea how creative the job of a teacher was. Not only do I define the topics, but each topic has to be researched and then expressed in an engaging manner. Great fun!
