Summary
Sander Vereecken


For over fourteen years I have been creating levels for games. Experimenting with design and gameplay is one of the many joys I get out of being creative. From mind boggling escher like environments to the simplicity of a few lines. besides design I like to relax, play games, watch movies/series, sport and meet up with friends. Talking to people, having a good laugh, being positive, learning and enjoying everything is what i’m all about.

The past three a half years I’ve been working on a professional basis for Guerrilla-Games in Amsterdam Where a worked on Killzone Shadowfall, Killzone Shadowfall intercept and Horizon Zero Dawn. In my spare time I’ve also worked on the indie game Renegade-X. Graduated from university: Communication & Multimedia Design at the NHL leeuwarden. And now ready to take on new challenges. Where I can build worlds that I can lose myself in.
