Astrid Knappmann


My name is Astrid Knappmann. I'm a transwoman who has always loved playing and designing games. Analyzing game design is a guilty pleasure of mine. My preferences of game genre are all over the place, because I am so attracted to games that I believe are well designed, regardless of the genre or platform. I do enjoy fantasy and sci-fi themes though.
My goal in life is to give players as amazing experiences as I have had (and still have!) playing games. Life can be cruel, so I want to help people enjoy it. Games are the best way of enjoying life in my opinion, so I will pursue my passion of creating games for players to enjoy.

In my spare time I watch all manner of fantasy shows and Netflix teen series when I'm not playing games. I am a bit of a hardcore gamer, but I also enjoy relaxing with emotional narrative games and strategy games.
