Meet Ben Sandfelder.
Welcome to my portfolio! I'm an indie game developer who has dabbled in freelance writing, level design, and project management. I've worked on digital and non-digital games. The lessons I learn in one medium, I translate and apply in the other.
In 2019, I organized a Kickstarter campaign to publish Lightning War, my own original tabletop RPG - a crash course in entrepreneurship and project management I'll never forget. The campaign was a success, and by leading a team of amazing freelancers, I took my game from a simple Word document to a published rulebook.
My passion is for games as a storytelling medium. How can I use mechanics to reinforce the themes of a story? How can I use narrative to compliment the pace of gameplay?
