I’m Eline Muijres and I’m Communications Manager at Dutch Game Garden, supporting starting game studios. I previously worked at Game Oven on Bounden and Jelly Reef, and at Monogon on Interloper, doing PR, marketing, and production. With my experiences of the inner workings of a small game studio, I aim to spread knowledge about game business topics and entrepreneurship to indie developers. At Dutch Game Garden, I support and connect people by organizing various events, workshops, classes, and trainings for game developers. I frequently give talks at international conferences.
I view games, or play in general, as an exciting form of art that is mostly unexplored, and love to play alternative, experimental games. I started out as a game journalist because of my passion for video games and writing. Gradually, as I interviewed more and more indie developers, I became interested in game development, especially the business side. I discovered I take great joy in supporting starting game developers, connecting them with the right people and creating opportunities for them. I believe the games industry harbors incredible talent. Making a living and surviving as a company is extremely challenging, however, and I’d like to dedicate my career to making this a little easier.
