Get to know Anders!

If you could choose one super power – what would it be?
Off the top of my head, I would say the ability to time travel. I would get to experience both the past and future (which would be awesome!) and I guess a quick trip into the future for some epic tech would in itself put me way ahead of Bruce Wayne. (Yes – I know... There's the issue of time paradoxes).

What is your favourite game and why?
I can't... choose a single game as my ultimate favorite. I like a game that is clean cut and well-designed, but love it if it shows me something new – like a truly original game mechanic. That being said, my collection of old 8-bit NES games has a very special place in my heart as this is where my love for digital games originates and I also have a special fondness for great board games – anything from Chess to Space Alert.

What was the last book you read?
I think it was Primo Levi's “If this is a man”. When reading, I tend to choose a lot of my books among the classics and “must-reads”. Before “If this is a man”, it was Hemmingway's “The old man and the sea”, Bram Stoker's “Dracula” and Charles Portis' “True Grit”. It's probably got something to do with my background as a philosopher and the fact that I think there's a lot to be learned from these works, both as a creative craftsman and as a human being - there's a reason why we call them classics :)
