About Me

I know we haven’t said so much about us, the actual people behind Ludosity Interactive and Bob Came in Pieces. So this is the beginning of a series of blog posts from the developers (and hopefully the others will follow) so let’s start!

So..Hi gamer!

My name is Daniel Kaplan and I’m currently running the office here at Ludosity. I was born and raised in Skövde (this is also where the office is situated), a small town in between the two big lakes in Sweden.

I have played games my whole life and my first memories from games comes from Super Mario Bros 2 and the NES. I remember playing the game day and night and actually wanted to be Lugi because he had weird feet movement when jumping which I found to be hilarious at that time. And so it continued. My mother has later told me that I said at the age of 5 that I wanted to work for Nintendo and create games. Ludosity is not Nintendo, but I have had great fun here at Ludosity! (If you see this Nintendo, please contact me). Anyhow, one of my favorite games are TetrisDS and Street Fighter 4. I have played a lot of TetrisDS and it is just a crazy game! The best part is when you have played it for a couple of minutes and you just feel that you are in a flow and everything just happens by automagic. Can you bet me? I have played to level 167 in TetrisDS.

At Upper Secondary School I studied at the Natural Science Programme and it was all about maths, physics and chemistry so I thought that programming would be my thing! But later on I found out that I wanted to try something completely new. So my actual creating-games-experience didn’t start until my time at the University of Skövde. I studied to become a 3D artist. It turned out that I liked animation and my bachelor thesis was all about analyzing animation. At the University I have had the chance to work with/get to know a lot of cool guys and some of them are Erik Svedäng (Blueberry Garden), Daniel Remar (Iji), Ola Holmdahl (Battlefield 1942), Mårten Brüggemann (Fret Nice) and Emil Berner (also Fret Nice).

Prior to starting up Ludosity I have worked on games such as Flipside of the Divne (created with Erik and Björn) and Det Goda Livet. Small projects that got quite some media attention after their initial release. Flipside of the Divine won a big game dev competition in Sweden. I also did some freelance work for a design company called Nooka.

The New Homepage and Logo

Hi and welcome to the new Ludosity Interactive site.
I thought that with this blog post I would explain why we have chosen to change our homepage and logo. I’ll try to keep it short, so let’s start with the homepage.

The Homepage

We wanted to create an easy navigated homepage with simplified design and also be able to update the homepage from wherever we are. So the whole homepage is built with WordPress system for easy and accessible updating. We also chose brighter colors to match our future needs and customer. Since we are a serious game company we think this new color theme is more attractable for our business2business.

The Logo

The logo is designed as a play button. Ludosity, which comes from the Latin word ludus, mean to play or games, so we chose to design our new logo to look like the play button icon which should tell that Ludosity Interactive is a game company. The logo is colored in blue and orange and you can also see two letters in the logo, the L and I of Ludosity Interactive.

The homepage and logo was created with the help of our friends at Grebban Design. The co-operation with the guys worked flawless and they were always easy to get a hold of. And it is also a benefit that they sit about 100m away from us :)

Site configuration

Hello, You!

Welcome to Ludosity Interactives blog portal!

Currently we are configuring our website to host a forum and a blog (that’s what you’re reading right now).

Here at the blog you will be able to read what we have to say about ongoing projects, events and happenings. From time to time, developers like me will voice out about stuff that we think are cool for you as a player and a fan to read about.

At the forum you can voice your own opinions, talk with other players and get to know the guys behind the scene better. We listen to requests from players, be it some awesome feature you’d like to see in our next game, or maybe you want to see something new on the website? You are in the center of our mindset, and our ambitious goal is to create the games that you want to play.

Stay tuned and don’t forget to bookmark us!
