Interview with Nicklas “Nifflas” Nygren

  • Alessandro Canossa


Nicklas Nygren is an archetypal independent game developer working in Sweden and Denmark, mostly alone or in very small teams, and specializes in side-scrolling, two-dimensional adventure platformers for desktop computers. He never planned to become a game developer or dreamed to work in a big studio, Nicklas just wanted to make cool games, mostly for himself, just for fun. He was really amazed to find out how many people actually played the games that he created just as a hobby and that he could actually make a living out of it.
