Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
In January 2017 I graduated from The Danish Royal Design School (KADK) as a bachelor in Design with specialty in Game Design.
My educated focused on developing concepts, visuals, mechanics and levels to form experiences for the player. With project-based semesters we learned hands-on what we needed in order to create a vertical slice of our concept. With too little time and sharp ambitious deadlines we throw us self into learn whatever skill needed to complete and develop.
I aim to create games designed to touch their players and have something to express. This could be by fun and exciting game play, a deep story or a string of choices that make you learn something about yourself. I look for the core feelings of the game and expand from there to make coherent and great experiences.
Games have always been a big part of my life and I enjoy them in many formats. Beside games on PC, console and mobile I play board games, pen&paper and live role-play. In 8 years I was Main event manager of the yearly convention Con2 which embrace role-play, board games, miniatures and the like. And I’ve won the Viking-con 34 audience re-run prize for a crazy candy-driven My Little Pony pen&paper game.
I ❤ games.
And now I’m making games for a living at Nap Nok Games, being responsible for 5 of the 15 mini games in Frantics.
Thanks for reading.
Jeff Cook, teacher in Game Design and Game Art, wrote me some quite nice words:
Please note that my full name is Lena Kikko Siggaard Henriksen, former Lena Siggaard Andersen. So it is me, though the names doesn’t match.
