About

Thank you for visiting my portfolio.

I’m a happy, caring and hard-working game designer.
Let me know if you have project ❤

Designing games 

I aim to create games designed to touch its players and have something to express. This could be by fun and exciting game play, a deep story or a string of choices that make you learn something about yourself. I look for the core feelings of the game and expand from there to make coherent and great experiences.

I have experience from big and small teams, in commercial projects and a bunch of hands-on school projects and game jams.

Jeff Cook, teacher in Game Design and Game Art, wrote me some quite nice words:
Please note that my full name is Lena Kikko Siggaard Henriksen, former Lena Siggaard Andersen. So it is me, though the names doesn’t match.
