5 Questions With…Vilma Saarinen
5 Questions with Vilma Saarinen
1. Where were you/what did you do before working at Seriously?
I always had an interest in games and how they were made, especially on the level design and game mechanics side of things. Before coming to Seriously, I worked at Frozenbyte as a level designer on a few projects.
2. What is your current role at Seriously?
I’m currently working as a level designer for Best Fiends. As a level designer, my job is to create a variety of levels that have cool and interesting mechanics that end up in the game for our players to enjoy and puzzle through.
3. What’s your favorite part about your job?
It’s hard to pinpoint just one favorite part of my job, but among them is definitely that I get to work for a company with an amazing atmosphere and with a team that has so many skilled and experienced people! Getting to create and design levels that challenge me and coming up with new ideas to implement is what keeps me motivated.
4. Who is your favorite Fiend or Slug and why?
Definitely Howie! I love how his sophisticated exterior sometimes breaks, plus he is a wizard, and that’s automatically cool.
5. When you are not working at Seriously or playing Best Fiends, what do you enjoy doing?
When I’m not doing Best Fiends-related things, I love to play all sorts of different games and take long walks in nature. I also recently took up drawing again, with the ultimate goal of being able to create cool artwork with a post-apocalyptic theme.
