I have the privilege of working my dream - making computer games of very high quality. I run a studio called Image & Form in rainy, windy Gothenburg, Sweden. Since we have approximately 20 seconds of sunlight over the course of the year, Swedes don't mind spending time in-house making computer games.
As of December 2013, Image & Form has made two noteworthy games since 2011 (and a whole slew not quite as noteworthy), namely Anthill for iOS/Android and SteamWorld Dig for 3DS/PC/Mac/Linux. Anthill was selected by Apple as Game of the Week at launch and nominated for a couple of GOTY awards at Nordic Games in 2012. SteamWorld Dig has been nominated for - and has received - a number of GOTY awards worldwide 2013. I&F is a mid-size setup with about a dozen hard-working, lovely, friendly people, each and one of them with whom I'd trust my wallet and savings at any given moment.
I'm married (sorry girls), live in beautiful Jonsered, the proud father of three wonderful children, and a bonus father of an additional two. A sucker for karaoke whenever given the opportunity, I sing in two bands and play at least one hour of chess every day.
Image & Form, one of Sweden's most interesting - and definitely the best-looking - game development studios delivers on the promise of posting the ultimate list of Top 5 Games 2013.

Yeah, I 'm actually exaggerating quite a bit. No one loves their co-workers as much as I do. They are in fact all brilliant people, and I 'm lucky to be in for the ride. We get along famously.
