Christian's games tend towards simple but rich mechanics that allow for a variety of interesting tactics. He is perhaps best known for the JRPG-inspired tabletop game Anima Prime, as well as his classic 2-player semi-competitive monster-slaying game Beast Hunters. His most recent project is Meridian, a game about traveling to a fantasy world and encountering a number of strange beings and situations.

Christian hails from Germany but now resides in Portland, where he's connected to a bunch of other local indie games folks. Christian and his wife Lisa worked with me on the Indie Mixtape project, and Christian is a valued friend and game design colleague who is always up for a lengthy and meaningful discussion.
