My name is Tino van der Kraan. Co-founder, game designer, and creative at SassyBot Studio in Breda, Netherlands.
Graduated and received my bachelor degree, without delay, at the International Game Architecture & Design at NHTV in Breda, Netherlands in 2013. At the university I specialised in Independent Game Development.
Outside of gaming I perform as a VJ (video artist). Another favourite way to pass the time is participating in game jams. In these game jams, my friends and I, created games such as Go Back, Fragments of Him, and Bomb Defuse Simulator 2013 of which the first two are playable on Kongregate.
A profile on Gamasutra would not be complete without listing a favourite game. The game I keep coming back to is Diablo 3. Not because it is especially good but because it helps me zone out and relax.
Growth in game development and the videogame industry is what I strive for. The development community is vibrant and creative and definitely a place I feel comfortable in.
Feel free to drop me a message. I would love to get in touch with you.
