Axel Lindberg grew up with a passion for playing, creating, and thinking about games of all sorts. He started out working professionally in the games industry at Avalanche Studios as a level designer on Just Cause. When Avalanche Studios started on Just Cause 2, Axel was given the opportunity to take on a new role as the game's lead AI designer. Late in Just Cause 2 beta, a small team of senior developers was asked to begin work on Renegade Ops. Axel led the creative aspects of the project as game director. Since that time, he has taken a job as Creative Producer at Arrowhead Game Studios (creators of 'Magicka' and 'The Showdown Effect').
