I am Sabine Rosgren, currently a Narrative Designer working at Respawn Entertainment in Los Angeles area.
Welcome to the restart of my new-but-continued blog about gaming, diversity and inclusivity and what it is like working in different countries. There might be one or two food posts, because what is a blog not mentioning food, but really I hope to share some insights I have made over the past 10+ years of adventuring through the games industry.
This is my summary:
Born and raised in Finland
Studied cellular biology one year in university, experienced moral conflicts.
Took a “gap year” studying Game Design at PlaygroundSquad in Falun, had the time of my life
Did my internship and later got hired full-time at Starbreeze Studios in Uppsala, turbulent times
Gameplay designer/scripter at MachineGames, unstoppable, at the top of my game
Moved to Canada to work for BioWare, level designer, very stubborn about finishing up Anthem
Moved to Los Angeles, Respawn Entertainment, and here we are. Still on that “gap year”
Current time, February 2020. Last year I had the pleasure of shipping Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and am currently also active in starting up diversity and inclusion events at Respawn Entertainment outside of my normal work.
I will share more details of my journey in future posts and hope that it will be educational and informative for anyone finding their way here.
