Gregor de Weger

Technical level & game designer

My name is Gregor de Weger, I am a creative professional with 4 years of game development experience in game design and technical level design.  

Currently studying at Breda University of Applied Sciences (formerly known as NHTV) since 2017. Throughout this study, I improved my game and level design skills, worked with big multi-disciplinary teams and led a couple of projects. Started off with getting a solid foundation in game and level design skills but also diversified my skillset by learning 3D modelling and texturing, animation and the basics of programming languages such as C#.

Video games are my first and foremost passion. It has always been a consistent part of my life. Whether it was playing, making levels in ingame editors or play games with a restriction to change the challenges and experience. I find one thing very important in my work and that is a challenge, this has always motivated me and drives me to perform at my best.
