Mikkel is nominated by Simon Stålhandske, CEO-founder at Tripple Topping with the following motivation:
Mikkel came to Triple Topping as an intern from Sonic College to work on the sound design for our game Welcome to Elk. He might have come to us as a sound design intern, but Mikkel ended up doing so much more. Mikkel is resourceful, smart working, artistic, pragmatic and fun to be around. While Mikkel was with us at Triple Topping, apart from doing some of the sound design, he coded and designed several of the mini games that went into the final game - including Gelk Stack which is a fan favorite! He also helped with QA and handled a big part of the production of the reveal trailer for the game. We were honestly blown away by what this inconspicuous audio tinkerer brought to the table. After leaving us, Mikkel has been making his own games from scratch, exploring innovative designs and mechanics. This package of creativity, skill and awesome person is why we think Mikkel is one of Denmark's talents of the year.
