Marcus is a game designer and author at Backwoods Entertainment in Bochum. The first project of the young team from the Ruhr area was the Point & Click Adventure Unforeseen Incidents. And somehow it was all just a coincidence. Unforeseen Incidents was born out of the dream to make an own game that feels like the old LucasArts classics. The idea, which was born in a small town on the edge of the Ruhr area, accompanied the three later Backwoods founders for several years and brought them together again and again. When it came to an even more chance encounter with Publisher Application Systems Heidelberg at Gamescom, it all happened very quickly. Marcus, Matze and Tristan founded a company and were suddenly right in the middle of the games industry – Hello! Now we are here and you won’t get rid of us that fast!
Besides the development of story games, Marcus and Backwoods are professionally engaged in mischief with the Indiestrolchen.
