Ouch!!! Being the avid gamer I am, pointing out one favourite game of all time is probably the most difficult question you could ask. It all depends on my mood.

But if I were to pick one right now, it would probably be Deus Ex. I keep coming back to it, and I absolutely love its world, music, characters, style and themes.

I saw in another post that you were developing a game! What got you into game development and how long have you been a creator?

I've been creating games since around 2002-2004 when I started trying different programming languages. I started out using DarkBASIC, which was better suited for 3D games, but eventually landed on Game Maker. I made a few 2D retro style games around 2004-2006, mostly for my own practice. As for what got me into game design, I think it's just the fact I am a creative person who needs different projects to do, and aside from graphical design and music production, it was another field I could express myself in. I also think I wanted to make my own games because of being a lifelong gamer. I've been playing computer games since as long as I can remember so it feels natural for me to also make my own games.

Around 2008-2009 I came up with the idea for ETHER, originally as a Wolfenstein 3D mod, an idea that never came to fruition as I ran into problems making custom music for the game.
Some years later I played MURI on PC and that inspired me to do ETHER as an oldschool EGA platformer instead as it reminded me of the games I grew up playing and I wanted to do the game as a tribute to my childhood.

In addition to music production and game design I would probably want to devote some time to collecting classic big box titles for PC.

Where in the world do you live?
What are the pros and cons of living there?

Norway.

Pros: Really good welfare system. Beautiful country.

Cons: Dunno. Compared to other countries it's pretty good. I'd say that Norwegians can be a bit too "normal" at times and cold, but that's just people in general I feel.

Oh. Weird question, but one I'm curious about - many Muslims in Norway?
I always hear about/meet online Muslims from Denmark and Sweden...But never Norway. 

We have a fair amount yes. I've met quite a few here in Sarpsborg. They tend to keep to themselves though due to the cultural barrier I imagine. I know I sure as hell wouldn't want them running the country...

I know not all muslims follow some of the more controversial traditions, but Norway is a Christian country and there are some obvious culture clashes.

As a Muslim myself I have I ask you what would be wrong with a Muslim running the country?

And controversial traditions? It'd be be cool if you'd elaborate on that was well.

🙂

Is Norway still a Christian country for real? I though Scandinavia as a whole was more secular on the national level...

I'd prefer not to elaborate more on it, just my own personal views based on my impression of how Muslim countries tend to be ruled, with regards to trans and gay people. It's nothing against you as a person or your faith, and most muslims I've met are kind people so it's not so much muslims themselves I disapprove of. I may have worded that wrong in retrospect. Apologies for how it came off.

And yeah, Norway remains a Christian country in terms of ruleset, though Sweden may be less so.

Okay, we'll leave it there per your comfort. 🙂

That's interesting that Norway remains Christian. I will say that of Sweden, Norway and Denmark - Norway is the only one I haven't visited and equally the one I know the least about.

Maybe more Norway questions...

I'll have to think.
