Emiel is a perfectionist who focusses first and foremost on the quality of his projects. He's a gamedesigner, developer and (slightly crappy) artist at his company Prrrpl. His design usually focusses on fun through interesting and unique game mechanics although he is building games to explore how to enable the player to have a good time through other game elements.
Emiel is also presenter of Gamekings.nl where he presents a show about Indie games (mostly dutch) called 'Indiekings' and he teaches 'Playability' and 'Usability' at the Utrecht University of Arts (The Netherlands). Alumni include Vlambeer, Adriaan de Jongh, Sharida Halatoe and The Ostrich Banditos.
Emiel is not a fan of hype and would regret jumping on the Indie hype train if only the indie scene weren't so darn cool. Emiel tries to make games that will have impact on people's interaction with each other.
