Martin started out as freelance web designer and systems manager, but soon became interested in game design. Being a gamer himself he wanted more from his games than pure entertainment. Trying to figure out how they work and designing maps using the available development tools for games/mods such as Natural Selection, Forgotten Hope and Company of Heroes.

In 2012 he joined the Unknown Worlds Entertainment (UWE) Play Test team for Natural Selection 2. A very important time, as this was also the final nudge he needed to get into independent game development for himself. Because of the close interaction with UWE and the PT team, he saw first hand what it took to develop a game from the ground up and deal with various bugs and feature requests. In 2013 he took on the job as the European Playtest Deputy for about a year. Taking on more responsibilities during the playtest and help guide the process and feedback to the UWE developers.

Is it Contained? and Booster Z-Frame are both his pet projects alongside an opensource Super Mario Bros clone, which was used as a learning process called Super Marine Bros. Which is now released as an open source Construct Classic project

A man who probably wears too many hats... He has to right now, because EXU is basically a one man company.
