Besides games what other influences brought you into your career? Whether it is books, movies, or artwork everyone has different tastes, tell us about yours.
As I mentioned earlier, I think the demo scene was very important in my career. In 90’s the demo scene was very strong and I remember that I was under a big impression of what people have been creating on theirs computers.

Pen and paper games had also a big influence on my life and career. I used to play with my friends from school. Our favorite systems were “Call of Cthulhu” and “Warhammer”. I am also a big fan of fantasy and horror books and movies. Among my favorite writers are H.P. Lovecraft and A. Sapkowski (author of “The Witcher” sage). I was also inspired by Z. Beksinski (polish artist) and H.R. Giger paintings.
