In this segment, we are getting to know the people behind Fireroot Studios.
This time we give the stage to: Lars Broer
Hi everyone! My name is Lars Broer, and I have been a part of Fireroot since the beginning. While we were working on Rogue Reaper, my job was to design the game. Currently, I’m focussing on the commercial elements of our company.
All my life I have lived in a crowded city. Because of this, I enjoy being surrounded by other people. Therefore you can find me regularly on Discord or a Twitch stream.
When I was sixteen years old, games like Assassin’s Creed and World of Warcraft made a huge impact on my life. They were the first games that made me get lost in a beautiful story. Games that made me forget reality. My biggest dream in life is to create those stories, so future generations can have the same wonderful experiences.
The first game that I have ever played would probably be Freddi Fish. This game came out in my birth year. As a youngster, I’ve played games throughout my entire childhood. These were often games where the story plays an important role. Games like Sly Cooper Series, Assassin’s Creed, and the Uncharted franchise.
When I think of a game that really got me into gaming, Runescape is the first game that comes to mind. This game showed me that there is an entire community surrounding video games. And that I was most definitely not the only one enjoying them.
Because of Runescape I also started to develop a passion for writing stories and developing games. At a later age, I discovered Blizzard Entertainment. This company has a special place in my heart. It started with Warcraft 3, but right now I’m mainly playing World of Warcraft, Diablo 3 and Overwatch.
During my free time, I am mainly reading books, coming up with or writing stories. Did you know that the inspiration for Rogue Reaper originated more than five years ago? I still have many more stories that I would love to share with the outside world someday.
Other than that, I also love to travel. To explore new cultures, discovering stories and getting to know the world!
At Fireroot Studios I am mainly working on all external communications. Interacting with the community, organizing playtests, attending events and more. My goal is to have a community that is developing the game with us. At the moment I am thinking about how we can achieve this in the best way possible.
Thank you for taking the time to hear my story! If there is anything that you would like to know, you can always talk to me on Discord.
