Svein-Gunnar Johansen's Blog
I have been a programmer since the 90s, but am currently doing a PhD on diabetes monitoring through serious games.
I am an intermittent video-game columnist for Dagbladet, a Norwegian newspaper and their affiliated gaming site: www.PressFire.no
I run a personal gaming blog called: Games are Awesomez, and I have a Steam curator profile where I recommend Awesome Japanese games from Japan.

Tile-based level design principles evolved to the next level. Good stuff : I especially liked these parts: r n r n- Self-imposed restrictions and Piet Mondrian. I knew of the principle, but its nice to have historical context for it as well. r n r n- Functional-but-ugly and instantiation by ...
