How does it feel to win the Swedish Game Awards? I'm shocked.

- Dungeon Heroes has been a side project which I have worked on for fun, says Fredrik who already is working on hit next project. When I moved to Skellefteå to start studying at the computer graphic-programme, I also started developing the game. After two years in school I know I could have made an even better game, says Fredrik.

Now what´s next?

I'm travelling with Tommy Palm at King.com to Barcelona and London next week. We will attend game events and visit their game studios.

Is Dungeon Heroes quite fully developed now or are you going to continue working with the game? The game is finished and I've done an update. It is available on App Store for 7 SEK. There is also a free version available for downloading.

You said earlier that you're working on a new game. Are you going to participate in next year's Swedish Game Awards?

-Now that I've had so much fun I have to try again.

You study computer graphic arts. The third year you have a final project. What will your focus be?

-I would like to develop my skills in 3D special effects. I already have my plans on what to do, but it will be a surprise.

You are 25 years old and grew up in Gothenburg. When did you get your interest in games? - I was 8 years old when I got my first game delopment programme of my dad. That´s when it all started.
