How did we find Emil?

It was the other way around – Emil found us! He was kind enough to offer to be a guest on Humans of SDU. We are always thankful to see the enthusiasm and welcome everyone to participate.

“Actually, there’s a study which has been made recently which has shown that during this lockdown children have seen games as a kind of social gathering. They can go with their friends in Minecraft or Roblox to create things. Also, it’s a creative way for children to express themselves.”


Emil isn’t a game developer but has an inside view into the industry. Many companies send him games for reviewing, so he can get his hands on them first.

But games aren’t just for fun – Emil explained to us how the Danish Government finances educational games for young kids.
