Like every author, I try to create games with innovative designs and mechanisms. But for me, that is not the most important thing about a game.
Because the most important thing about any game is what you feel, when you are playing it.
Hence my motto:
Games are not about the rules, they are about your feelings!
I want you to have fun when you are playing one of my games.
I want you to be drawn into another world, forget your normal life and be a roman, a deer hunter or a sorcerer.
I want you to live in the Neolithic world, build a new city or reign your own empire.
In short: I want you to enjoy yourself. That is my mission!
