Hey my name is Magnus Villumsen, a MSc Game Designer from the IT University of Copenhagen. I think video games are awesome, and that’s why I design, write, study and play them! I do concept development for digital design, and always have a strong focus on creating value for the user. My interests range from narrative design, VR, Esports, gamification to football, hitting headshots, environmental awareness, and enjoying a good bear in good company. Reach out and let’s talk!
Selected Academic work
Both my BSc in Digital Media and Design, as well as my MSc in Game Design have had a twofold focus on part theory and part practice. Thus, I have written several academic articles, which has allowed me to build knowledge on areas of my interest. Especially VR and Esport have been the focus of my academic attention. Lately, community management and narratives in games have been my primary focus. I am currently writing my MSc thesis on how players create their own narratives in games. Check out a handful of my papers below to get an idea of what I have been delving into.
