We’re Maschinen-Mensch, a small Berlin game studio founded by the former AAA developers Riad Djemili and Johannes Kristmann. In our talk we’ll share our favorite insights of our crazy ride from being employed at one of Germany’s largest game development studio to our own little venture. In our first year we’ve made a lot of very positive experiences. We discovered our own way for being successful and stay sane, being heard and seen by the press, building a community and working on a rather uncommon game: The Curious Expedition.
Riad Djemili worked for 7 years as a senior programmer at the Berlin game developer YAGER (Spec Ops: The Line, Dead Island 2). In 2014 he cofounded MaschinenMensch and is now working on their first indie title The Curious Expedition an expedition simulation set in the 19th century.
Johannes Kristmann has an experience of 8 years in professional games development. Before founding MaschinenMensch and working on The Curious Expedition he was employed at Berlin based development studio YAGER, where he was working as a senior game designer.
