Who is Mark Soderwall?
Mark has a singular focus, resolve and heart’s cry – to see aspiring game creators step into not only development success and accomplishment but into who they truly are! Mark has been successfully creating & directing games at the AAA level for over 20+ years. However, after years of the thankless grind, tired annual franchise developments, massive team lay-offs and over-hyped grandeur of BIG studio developments – Mark jumped-out and straight into the creative and entrepreneurial world of Independent game development! Mark discovered he was able to apply his years of design, methods & production experience into a world that allowed him to have a unique voice, creativity and independence! Having platformed skyward for years – Mark wants you to feel this same rush, fulfillment and success with your own independent dreams and developments!
“It’s difficult to hear and see so many fresh creatives and developers with passion, ambition and drive continually hitting the proverbial wall – spiraling them into cycles of frustration, discouragement or even quitting!” It’s in this conviction Mark has focused his motivation, experience and mentor-ship to helping those creatives who are ready to embark on their creative journey! If you’re tired of getting stuck or sick of the constant ‘stops & starts’ we’ll help you break the cycle! IndieGameU looks to empower those few that are serious about their future success – those who are ready to show up, learn and start kicking-ass! As Mark likes to say, “IndieGameU makes no apologies for ‘getting real’ with you, just as long as you’re ready to get real with your development, life goals and success! It’s time to DO this – YOU can DO this!”
Can’t wait to see you on the inside! We’re here, ready when you are!
