Big news – we’re opening a new outpost of Die Gute Fabrik in New York City!
Er, well, that makes us sound larger than we actually are. By “opening an outpost” I mean that I’m personally moving back to America (my home country). Nils and Christoffer are staying here in Copenhagen, and we’ll be working together remotely.
I’m moving for a whole variety of reasons. I was born and raised in New Jersey, and so after over a decade in California and Denmark, I’m finally returning “home.”
But the move is also motivated by some professional reasons. In the last few years, New York City has become a real hotbed of game dev talent. As far as I’m concerned, NYC is the place to be for cutting-edge game development these days. Institutions like Babycastles, Eyebeam, Come Out & Play, and the NYU Game Center are running innovative events and programs that are galvanizing community and building bridges between games and other cultural domains like music, art, theater, and academia. And so many of my colleagues and favorite game designers are in NYC. Suffice to say, I want in on that mix!
If you’re in NYC and want to say hello, drop us a line! I should land next month, just in time to speak at NYU’s PRACTICE conference. Exciting!
