Game designer Marc Wilhelm has collaborated on a variety of successful game projects. His professional work on development teams at industrial scale publishers and studios has resulted in the publication of critically acclaimed and award winning AAA PC & console titles. Additionally, his experience with smaller and medium sized start-ups and incubators has led to novel and successful web based, social and mobile projects, utilizing a variety of monetization strategies and models.
Through his professional journey in games, Marc has taken opportunities to explore several roles including 3D/ 2D artist, game designer and producer. Under the moniker 'Marc Von Wilhelm' and the banner of 'Fresh Aces Videogames', Marc also self-publishes games independently. His solo-developed titles have been included in indie-game bundles and have earned praise from both players and critics.
In 2011, Marc founded the 'Colorado independent Game Developers Association' (CiGDA), successfully creating a diverse forum for artists, developers and musicians to discover and build a local, collaborative game-development community. The group encourages the pursuit of knowledge and expression by fostering a safe, open, supportive and inspiring environment. CiGDA believes in progressing the interactive arts to 'create good' through events such as local charity game jams & youth outreach.
Marc currently serves an appointment as Assistant Professor of Game Design at Champlain College's Game Studio, a division of the School of Communication & Media Arts. He participates in game jams, conferences and festivals such as the Game Developers Conference, PAX and IndieCade.
