Why did you volunteer at Games For Love?
After graduating and while job hunting, I needed a reason to continue programming, to get better and learn new things. So I looked into volunteering. Games For Love was an instant match because of my love for games!
What is your favorite video-game and why?
There have been many over the years. Spyro: Year of the Dragon, Okami, Team Fortress 2 and Hollow Knight to name a few. But if I had to choose one, I’d say it has to be West of Loathing. No other video game had me laughing in my seat as much as WoL did. (You’d think I’d get tired of all the dad jokes and absurdist Dadaism after 30 hours of gameplay). That, coupled with the fact that WoL’s side quests are layered and have more depth than many other popular RPGs that rely on simple variations of fetch/fight/escort quests. I’m one of those people who check for every little detail and inch of space in games. WoL rewards that habit with abundant gameplay-affecting Easter eggs and more jokes. 10/10.
