Felix is nominated by Julie Heyde, CEO, Bandello + General Manager, FlatPonies/VRUnicorns with the following motivation:
I first met Felix when working on Rebots where he had joined as an audio intern as part of his bachelor’s degree at Sonic College. Felix impressed me from day one and showed comprehensive technical knowledge and perfectionism as well as flair for overall game design and direction. Soon Felix was not only working on sound and music for Rebots, but also directing one of our other games, #AkiRobots, and took over direction of the revamp of #SkiJump. Felix is not shy of a challenge, quickly jumps into any tool to work on the various games and has a strong ability to approach any aspect of game development from a solid design standpoint and manages the full development cycle with clear vision and people-first direction. Felix is simultaneously with the other games running pre-development of an upcoming and announced game based on his idea and game design which we hope to announce before Summer. I have rarely met anyone in the games industry spanning so wide in terms of skills and also being capable of finishing and shipping games. Felix is a fundamental person to have on the team when running a multi game studio like FlatPonies/VRUnicorns.
