Hi there. My name is Gustav Dahl. Since my early childhood, I have been fascinated by everything related to games and technology.

Here are two pictures of me: receiving a Game Boy on my fifth birthday, and trying the Oculus Rift for the first time:

That Game Boy was my first encounter with the magical world of videogames — and I have been hooked ever since (if you are curious, I am playing a game called The Smurfs – a surprisingly difficult platformer, which I never managed to complete. Games in the ’90s were tough! It had catchy music, though).

This portfolio hosts all of my game projects so far. Most of the games were developed either at game jams or as university projects. Some of my older games are maybe not the best, but I like to be able to go back and look at my previous projects. I consider them all useful learning experiences, as well as a step forward in making better and more sophisticated experiences.

Over the years I’ve played a good bunch of different games. Below are some of my favorites:

  • Super Metroid (1994)
  • Super Mario 64 (1997)
  • Pokémon Silver (2001)
