Who Am I

Hello! My name is Kenth Ljung and I'm from Sweden. I am mainly a programmer. My programming interest began when I started in junior high dabbling with basic scripts doing annoying fake popup viruses to mess around. I then moved on to making crude games in Flash.

I have always loved playing video games. As a kid I would sit for hours scribbling on my own little Super Mario or Goldeneye level designs, or design new beam weapons and enemies for Metroid. I did an entire overworld map for Zelda 1 complete with entrances and hidden items marked, on pen and paper. I also did an complete guide on every mask in Majora's Mask, also written by hand.

During junior high I would also play around a lot with Photoshop and Dreamweaver, leading up to my long experience as a web developer. Throughout secondary school I took programming more seriously, landed a few one-off internships/summer jobs, and ultimately graduated with two scholarships, one for best IT student (good grades, low absence etc.) and one for best 3rd year project, which was a small game project, made in Unreal Engine 3 (UDK), largely inspired by Rune (by Human Head Studios). For that project I worked solo and made everything including programming, modelling, and animations. Most is lost now except for a few very very early demo videos.
