Joakim Vestin

Designer, PlaygroundSquad 2015

My name is Joakim Vestin and I'm a game designer currently studying at Playgroundsquad in Falun. At heart I'm a level designer however I've also found quite an interest in gameplay design and quality assurance.

I've always been interested in level design as I've been creating levels and maps for all kinds of games on my spare time for the last 10 years. Through studying at Playgroundsquad I got my first chance at persuing my goal to work as a level designer.

What drives me as a designer:

  • The challenge of designing new creative games

  • Working in groups with artists, programmers and other designers to bring life to games.

  • Trying to break my own designs, find out their flaws and fix them.

Difficult but fair games is my calling, I strongly prefer games that challenge the players creativity to overcome difficult obstacles. And if the game also can deliver a great co-op experiance I'm sold.
