My name is Johan Karlsson and I've worked in the games industry since 2009.
In 2014 I got the opportunity to work for Tension Graphics and PlaygroundSquad and have been with them since.
As a developer I am a jack of all trades. I've been a texture artist, props artist, environment artist, FX artist and a stand-in lighting artist. I specialize in FX and I love moody environments and flashy RPG effects.
On my spare time I enjoy playing games. Who would have known? Some of my favourites are:
Elite Dangerous, Ori and the blind forest, Trine 2, World of Warcraft and Skyrim.
I also enjoy photography.
I've built a home-made portrait studio for photography here at Tension and I'm usually responsible for taking headshots of collegues and students. I've also taken a lot of photos for the website:
