Jürgen Brunner is currently working as an indie developer & sound designer in Austria and Germany. You can definitely call him a “Video game enthusiast” since the 1980s. Remembering the first gaming sessions on a friends “Amiga 500” he tries to stay as connected as possible to the main goal of every game: Fun!
Studying game design and music at the University of Applied Sciences in Salzburg, he received his degree in 2010 with the diploma thesis “Jump n Run Evolution”. While working as a researcher at the Pervasive experience lab (P.e.l.s) in his former university he had the privilege to explore augmented reality and pervasive games as well as Kinect hacks.
Jürgen made his way to the professional gaming industry as a game and level designer in 2012 (Chimera Entertainment). Since 2015 he is working in his own indie games company called ILIKESCIFI Games. Besides that he is a freelancer for music, sound design and game development.
His love and passion for retro graphics, music and art can be experienced with every new game and in every new song. Besides working on games he is also a passionate musician. Playing 6 instruments, Jürgen is still trying to spend every free minute with music.
