Since 2018 I’ve been slowly making my way into the game industry. It’s a tough industry, especially if you want to start your own studio. Without subsidies or an investor, you’re in for a ride.
I’m working on a couple of small titles and trying to build a team while being part of the incubation program of Dutch Game Garden in Utrecht.
I’ve made a couple of smaller titles since 2019:
- Whaling (2019), minor title, android
- Heartless (2019), minor title, pc, and android
- Highlander (2019), game jam game, pc
- Frail: Ego 49 (2020), a discontinued mobile game
Currently, I’m focussing on getting everything in place for my new studio JoTo Games in which I’ll be focusing on hybrid casual titles.
For Dutch Game Garden I handle communications, project management for INDIGO, and sales.
Dutch Game Garden (DGG) is a game incubator and business center in the Netherlands housing 40+ game studios. Their mission is to create job opportunities and economic growth by supporting the Dutch games industry and promoting entrepreneurship. I was super lucky that they asked me to take up this role.
