Currently available for new projects!


Hi, I'm Val Tamer, a freelance game / narrative designer and artist based in Hamburg, Germany. I was recently employed at Daedalic Entertainment, acting as Assistant Creative Lead, Game & Narrative Designer on “Ken Follett’s: The Pillars of the Earth”. I hold a B.Sc in Game Design from M.DH Düsseldorf and my thesis has been published as “Fantasies of Disempowerment: The Lure and Value of Voluntary Power Loss in Single-Player Video Games”. In 2015 my German-language radio play "On the internet, nobody knows you're a fungus" was nominated for the LfM Bürgermedienpreis (local radio award). I also give talks on game and narrative design at conferences and universities from time to time.
