Pleased to meet you!

August 2nd, 2010 by Christian Knudsen

Welcome to my little corner of the Internet. Let’s get the introductions out of the way…

My name is Christian Knudsen. I’m 31 years old and live in Copenhagen, Denmark. I’ve been making computer games for the past 8 or so years in my pastime. My most well known game is probably Ascii Sector, a freeware textmode space game. I recently decided to take the plunge and try my hand at commercial game development, and Laserbrain Studios and this website and blog are the first tangible results of that decision. Programming and game making is still not a full-time job for me as I still need bread on the table and a roof over my head, but I hope to one day live off the games I make.

Hostile Takeover is the title of what I hope will be my first commercial game of many. It’s somewhat of a sci-fi game as I’m a sci-fi geek, and it’ll be in good ol’ 2D isometric graphics as I’ve always had a soft spot for that style. Maybe it’s just nostalgia for the games of yore, but I feel something often gets lots in the realism of 3D.

My two all-time favorite games are without a doubt the original X-COM (or UFO: Enemy Unknown as it was called here in Europe) and Wing Commander: Privateer. As I’m a fan of isometric graphics, I of course also enjoyed games like Fallout 1 and 2 and the Syndicate series. I hope to make original games that’ll have a feel of their own, but as with any artistic output, I’m sure my influences will shine through, so if you like the games I like, chances are you’ll probably also like the games I plan to make.

Anyway, that’ll have to do for introductions for now. As to this website, I hope to update it often with development news on Hostile Takeover and probably some off-topic blog entries once in a while if a subject catches my eye or there’s something I want to share.

That’s me. Let me know in the comments who you are and what games you enjoy, so we can all get to know each other!
